I have my father in law suffering from a mouth ulcer. Since he lives in a remote area which is medically nt very good. The doctor diagnosed it as a symptom of cancer. I want to understand what ulcers can lead to cancer and how do we verify the same. Thanks for your time!

Well. No doctor can predict without seeing the case. Kindly get him checked preferably by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

The best diagnosis can be made seeing him clinically doing a biopsy, going through history and with histopath study earlier the better, maxillofacial surg is the doc req.
