the roof and floor of the mouth, in the tonsils, and in the salivary glands. What Are the Symptoms of Oral Cancer?
The most common symptoms of oral cancer include: A sore that doesn’t heal
A sore that bleeds A growth, lump or thickening of the skin or
lining of your mouth Loose teeth
Poorly fitting dentures Tongue pain
Jaw pain or stiffness Difficult or painful chewing
Difficult or painful swallowing Sore throat Causes of mouth cancer
Cancer results when a genetic mutation instructs cells to grow without control. Untreated,
oral cancer will start in one part of the mouth, then spread to other parts of the mouth,
to the head and neck, and the rest of the body. Mouth cancers typically start in the
squamous cells that line the lips and the inside of the mouth. This is called squamous
cell carcinoma. The exact cause of the mutations is unknown,
but there is evidence that certain risk factors increase the chance of mouth cancer developing. Risk factors for mouth cancer
Tobacco and alcohol use are prominent risk factors for mouth cancer.
Smokers are three times more likely than nonsmokers to develop mouth cancer, and people
who smoke and drink alcohol have up to 30 times higher risk than those who do not smoke
and drink. Other risk factors include:
Ultraviolet exposure on the lips, from the sun, sunlamps, or sunbeds
A diet rich in red meat, processed meat, and fried foods
Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), a digestive condition where acid from the
stomach leaks back up to the gullet Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection
Prior radiation treatment, or radiotherapy, in the head, neck, or both
Regularly chewing betel nuts, a popular habit in some parts of Southeast Asia
Exposure to certain chemicals, especially asbestos, sulfuric acid, and formaldehyde
The United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) note that there is a “small chance”
that broken or jagged teeth increase the risk of mouth cancer. They encourage people to
follow good oral and dental hygiene practices, including regular brushing, to reduce the
risk. Diagnosis
A biopsy may be carried out, where a small sample of tissue is taken to check for cancerous
cells. Sometimes a “brush biopsy” is used initially; this where cells are painlessly
collected by brushing them to one side. If mouth cancer is diagnosed, the next task
is to determine the stage of the cancer. Tests include:
Endoscopy, where a lighted scope is passed down the patient’s throat to see how far the
cancer has spread. Imaging tests, such as X-ray, Computed Tomography
(CT) scans, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Staging the cancer will inform treatment
options and help predict prognosis. What does mouth cancer look like?
