Mouth Cancer - Warning Signs You Must Watch Out For!

Mouth Cancer - Warning Signs You Must Watch Out For!

The big ‘C’ or cancer is the most dreaded disease, but in most types of cancer, an early diagnosis can stop the progression of the disease and cure it. Mouth cancer or oral cancer is one such type of cancer that can be treated and cured is diagnosed in its early stage.

This type of cancer can affect any part of the mouth including the lips, tongue, throat, salivary glands, sinuses, larynx and pharynx. Some of the symptoms to look out for are:

  1. Velvety red, white or speckled lesions on any part of the mouth
  2. Lumps or patches in and around the mouth and throat
  3. Sores that do not heal within 2 weeks and bleed easily
  4. Swelling of the lips or gums
  5. Pain and tenderness in the mouth
  6. Numbness in any part of the mouth, face or neck
  7. Difficulty moving the tongue or jaw that affects chewing, swallowing or speaking
  8. Loose teeth
  9. Unexplained bleeding in the mouth
  10. Prolonged soreness or hoarseness of the throat
  11. The feeling of something being stuck in your throat
  12. Pain in one ear without any loss of hearing
  13. Drastic weight loss

Some people have a higher risk of suffering from mouth cancer than others. Some of these risk factors are:

  1. Men have twice the risk of developing oral cancer as compared to women.
  2. Men above the age of 50 are at the highest risk
  3. Cigarette, cigar or pipe smokers have a higher risk of developing oral cancer than nonsmokers
  4. Chewing tobacco products and other such smokeless tobacco can also increase the risk of oral cancer
  5. Excessive alcohol consumption makes a person more vulnerable to this disease
  6. Family history of cancer
  7. Excessive exposure to UV radiation from the sun at an early age
  8. Certain strains of Human papillomavirus (HPV).

Visiting a dentist regularly can dramatically reduce your chances of suffering from mouth cancer. Ideally, an oral cancer screening should be performed once every 3 years up to the age of 40 and annually from there on. This is because a dentist will be able to examine your mouth and see parts that you cannot see easily. In case he suspects oral cancer, a biopsy may be needed to further confirm the diagnosis.

Further tests such as blood tests, X-ray and scans may also be needed. The smaller the ulcer, the easier it is to cure. Oral cancer can be treated with surgery to remove the tumor or through radiation and chemotherapy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

Due to BPH and acute urinary retention, I have bladder stones. Been checking into having PAE done to reduce the size of my prostate, but the radiologist says that I must have the stones removed before the PAE. My new urologist told me that because my prostate is so large (no urologist has told me.

Mr. Lybrate-user, both can be tackled at the same sitting, check on your urologist. If the stones are very small, once you undergo turp for your enlarged prostate, stones will pass out, if not, at the same sitting, they can remove the stones doing a cystoscopy.

Cancer is uncontrolled proliferation of transformed cells in any part of the body. Neoplasm or tumor are used variably to describe any swelling or new growth. Benign growths don’t have potential to spread to other organs or parts of the body while malignancy or malignant growths have uncontrolled proliferation and metastatic potential. Transformation is multistep process with genetic alterations by which normal cells acquire malignant potential, uncontrolled proliferation capacity and capacity to spread to other parts of the body (metastasis) Worldwide cancer is responsile for 1 in 8 deaths

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Well, blood cancer is characterized by uncontrolled growth of the cells of either the lymphatics system or of the cells in the bone marrow. It could present with one or more of the following symptoms - bones/ joints pain, swollen lymph nodes, fevers, night sweats, fatigue/ weakness, tendency to bleed easily, frequent infections, loss of weight/ appetite etc all. The treatment varies basis the type of cancer one is suffering from, apart from other aspects. Your haemato-oncologist can best clarify the treatment protocol/ approach as would be appropriate contextually. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

I am 30 years old and married. My mother-in-law as well as father-in-law had cancer. Mother-in-law had gallbladder cancer, she expired four years ago. Father-in-law had cancer in kidney which is operated but he further has tissues in his lungs which cannot be operated. My question is, is cancer heredity? Is there any chance that my husband might also have the problems? What are the symptoms to check or what precautions can we take?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Yes cancer occurence may have a hereditary component and your husband is definitely at an increased risk of developing cancer than normal population, but it is not necessary that he develops it. Just be cautious, go in for regular checks may be annual with an oncologist.

I had uterine cancer scare in 2015. I had undergone hysterectomy. Though all the tests were negative for cancer I have developed a fobia of cancer. I always feel sick. My stomach aches all the time. N in dreams also I always see sickness or sick people. Most of the time myself .Is this neurological disorders. I try to remain happy n keep myself busy. But subconsciously I always see myself taking medication and injections. Please advice.

MBBS, DPM

Dear lybrate-user, Health anxiety is one of the disorders of mind. It is not neurological - it is psychological. That means, your mind finds you sick though your brain knows you are not having cancer. This kind of health anxiety is common in hypothyroidism. With whatever dose of thyronorm you are taking, please get TSH level done on your blood. With that report, please consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist who can treat you with psychotherapy. It needs many sessions and your co operation. All the best.

I have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck from two months it comes with a very bad cold but till now its not gone and I am still having infection in my throat I also done a needle biopsy and everything came back normal but neither the infection nor the enlarged lymph node is gone. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You must take a good course of antibiotics and anti allergic. You can check your sputum for sensitivity of antibiotics. Lymph node enlargement may be infection related though it is surprising why you have it for so long. Beyond this I need to examine and check your immune status to know the cause of infection.
