Tobacco is one of the most important risk factors for premature death globally. More than 60 toxic chemicals in tobacco can invade the body’s various systems. Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a pathological type of oral cancer, accounting for over 90% of oral cancers. A vast quantity of scientific, clinical and epidemiological data shows that tobacco is associated with the development of oral squamous cell carcinoma, and its carcinogenic pathways may be complicated. It is widely accepted that tobacco is one the most important carcinogenic factors of OSCC, and its carcinogenic pathways may be multifaceted. However many cases of squamous cell carcinoma has been reported in person with no history of tobacco use especially in females. The purpose of this review is to summarize the possible mechanisms of non tobacco etiologies that promote the development of OSCC, on the basis of relevant research, so as to provide directions and ideas for future related research.
