Oral Cancer

Oral cancer also known as mouth cancer is the cancer of the lining of the lips, mouth, or upper throat. In the mouth, it first appears as a painless white spot, which thickens and evolves into red patches, an ulcer, and continues to ripen. When on the lips, it usually looks like a persistent crusty ulcer that does not heal and spreads slowly. Other symptoms may include new hard or painful lumps, swallowing or lumps in the neck, swelling in the mouth, or a feeling of numbness in the mouth or lips. Risk factors increase with tobacco and alcohol consumption. With tobacco and alcohol consumption, the risk of oral cancer increases 15 times more. HPV infection, sun exposure to the lower lip, and chewing are also risk factors. The head and neck cancer subgroup is oral cancer. The diagnosis of oral cancer is made by a biopsy of the affected area, followed by investigation by CT scan, MRI, PET scan and examination to determine if it has spread to distant parts of the body.
