Mouth cancer has the same meaning as oral cancer. Oral Cancer occurs in any part of the mouth; on the tongue's surface, in the lips, inside the cheek, in the gums, in the roof and floor of the mouth, in the tonsils, and also the salivary glands. Oral cancer is a type of head and neck cancer, and is often treated similarly to other head and neck cancers.
Symptoms of Oral / mouth Cancer
Most patients have no detectable symptoms during the early stages of oral cancer. Smokers, heavy drinkers should have regular checkups with their dentists as they are often able to identify signs of oral cancer. Common Oral Cancer symptoms include:
Patches on the lining of the mouth or tongue, usually red or red and white in color
Mouth ulcers that do not go away
Sore throat that does not heal
A swelling in the mouth that persists for over three weeks
A lump or thickening of the skin or lining of the mouth
Loosening teeth (tooth) for no clear reason
Dentures don't fit properly
Jaw pain & Stiffness
A sensation that something is stuck in your throat
A hoarse voice
Pain in the neck that does not go away
Blood from the gums or the teeth
A risk factor is anything that increases that likelihood of developing a disease or condition. For example, regular smoking increases the risk of developing Oral cancer, therefore smoking is a risk factor for Oral Cancer. The risk factors for mouth cancer include:
Smoking - studies indicate that a 40-per-day smoker has a risk five times great than a lifetime non-smoker of developing oral cancer
Taking snuff (snorting tobacco)
Both heavy and regular alcohol consumption - somebody who consumes an average of 30 pints of beer per week has a risk five times greater than a teetotaler or somebody who drinks moderately
Heavy smoking combined with heavy drinking - as tobacco and alcohol have a synergistic effect (their combined effect is greater than each one added together separately), people who drink and also smoke a lot have a significantly higher risk of developing oral cancer compared to others.
Too much sun exposure on the lips, as well as sunlamps or sunbeds
Diet - excessive red meat or fried stuff
GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease) - people with this digestive condition where acid from the stomach leaks back up through the gullet (esophagus) have a higher risk of oral cancer.
HPV (human papillomavirus) infection
Prior radiation treatment (radiotherapy)
Regularly chewing betel nuts
