Problem statement: To examine the risk factors of oral cancer at the earlier stage. Smoking, chewing, and drinking are the major risk factors which cause oral cancer considered as input variables. Approach: A case – control study was conducted at JKK Nataraj Dental College and Hospital, during the period from September 2007 to November 2009, in Namakkal District, Tamilnadu, India. Data collected were analyzed using Fuzzy Linear Regression. For this JAVA program was developed. Results: Using this fuzzy linear regression model Smoking, Drinking, and Chewing were identified as potent risk factors of oral cancer. Conclusion: Smoking, drinking, and chewing, are the most dangerous risk factors that will cause oral cancer. This study will help to improve the clinical practice, guidance for analyzing the risk factors of oral cancer.
