Oral cancer is a type of cancer that never comes to mind, but the frequency of it is increasing day by day. Often the indication can be mixed with situations such as throat pain, gingival pain, tooth pain, etc.
Indescribable pain in the mouth, chewing and swallowing difficulty, and strain in tongue and jaw movements can be the indications of mouth cancer. Cancer is explained as the unmanageable growth of cells that invade and damage surrounding tissues. Oral cancer appears as a sore in the mouth which cannot be finished with painkillers. Oral cancer, which includes cancers of the lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses and throat can have fatal consequences if it is not diagnosed and treated early.
According to the oncologists, sometimes mouth cancer may occur without giving any symptoms, but mostly it gives disturbing signs that it will cause you to decrease the quality of your life. In the advance stages, the presence of the tumor in the mouth constitutes a problem for the patient.
Indescribable pain in the mouth, white or red colored areas in or around the gums, the presence of sensitive, irritated, raised or thickened areas in the mouth that can be felt with the tongue, or swelling and numbness in the tongue or other parts of the mouth, permanent white spots (leukoplakia) or red spots (erythroplakia) in the mouth are some of the indications of the mouth cancer.
The white or red stains in the mouth can be confirmed as precursor cancer indications. If you have any of these indications, you should be examined by a doctor or dentist immediately.
