The white patches characteristic of leukoplakia are usually well defined, often thickened, raised, or both, and develop at various sites, mostly in the mouth, but also in the genital region. The condition mainly affects men between the ages of 40 and 70.

However, leukoplakia is what is known as pre-cancerous, meaning that it can lead to cancer, although even if diagnosed quite late it can be cured. But everyone should be on their guard against leukoplakia: in its early stages it causes no pain, and goes easily undetected.
