Abstract

Based on the morbidity and mortality due to oral cancer, it is essential that oral cancer information available on the Internet be usable, organized and credible. We evaluated the information quality of 24 English-language and 25 Spanish-language oral cancer websites. English-language sites scored 74.7 out of 100 points on the Information Quality Tool scale, while Spanish-language sites scored 48.8. Developers of oral cancer websites should improve the design, organization and credibility of the information presented.
