Oral Cancer Signs and Symptoms

Signs and Symptoms
Oral cancer usually occurs in people over the age of 45 but can develop at any age. These are some symptoms to look for:
  • A sore on the lip or in the mouth that does not heal.
  • A lump on the lip or in the mouth or throat.
  • A white or red patch on the gums, tongue, or lining of the mouth.
  • Non–healing ulcer in the Buccal cavity or on the tongue.
  • Unusual bleeding, pain, or numbness in the mouth.
  • A sore throat that does not go away, or a feeling that something is caught in the throat.
  • Difficulty or pain with chewing or swallowing.
  • Swelling of the jaw that causes dentures to fit poorly or become uncomfortable.
  • A change in the voice.
  • Pain in the ear.
These symptoms may be caused by cancer or by other, less serious problems. It is important to see a dentist or doctor about any symptoms like these, so that the problem can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
