Oral Cancer - 11 Warning Signs You Must Never Ignore!

Oral Cancer - 11 Warning Signs You Must Never Ignore!

Oral cancer is the name given to cancer that develops in the tissues of the mouth or oral cavity. If you interact with a specialist, you will know that oral cancers belong to a larger group of cancers called head and neck cancers. And more importantly, oral cancers are one of the most preventable cancers. You may already be aware that cancers develop when cells begin to divide indiscriminately forming malignant tumors. In oral cancers, the dividing cells are the ‘squamous’ cells found in the lining of your mouth, tongue, and lips.

An implausible fact about oral cancers is that these are most often discovered after they have spread to the lymph nodes of the neck- which means at the stages III and IV. All cancers including oral cancers become more difficult to cure at these later stages. This is why early detection is key to surviving oral cancer.

Types of oral cancers

  1. Oral cancers, to be precise, including cancers of the:
  2. Lips
  3. Tongue
  4. Gums
  5. Cheek
  6. Floor of the mouth
  7. Roof of the mouth, including hard and soft palate

Usually, it’s your dentist who is the first to notice the first signs of oral cancer.

Risk factors
Tobacco use is the biggest risk factor for oral cancer. Tobacco includes smoking cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, and pipes, as well as chewing tobacco. Alcohol is another big risk factor. So, if you are one of those heavy drinkers, be aware of the scourge of oral cancer and get yourself tested periodically to rule out this killer. The risk for oral cancer also increases exponentially when both alcohol and tobacco are used together.

Other important risk factors are:

  1. HPV infection i.e. human papillomavirus is a sexually transmitted virus that spreads through unprotected vaginal as well oral sex
  2. Chronic sun exposure on the face, especially the lips
  3. Family history of oral or other types of cancer
  4. Men are more susceptible to oral cancers
  5. Being older than 45
  6. Radiation exposure
  7. Having any other form of head and neck cancer

Symptoms of oral cancer

  1. Sore lip or mouth that is not healing
  2. Any growth inside your mouth
  3. Bleeding from the mouth, including jaws
  4. Loose teeth
  5. Difficulty or pain while swallowing
  6. Major trouble wearing dentures
  7. A lump in neck or cheek
  8. Chronic earache
  9. Serious weight loss
  10. Numbness in lower lip, face, neck, or chin
  11. Any colored patch in the mouth or lips

Diagnosis of oral cancer

  1. Diagnosis starts with a physical exam of your mouth. The physician will examine the roof and floor of your mouth, the back of your throat, tongue, and cheeks, and the lymph nodes in your neck.
  2. If your doctor finds any tumor, growth, or suspicious lesions in your mouth, she/he will perform a biopsy to collect cells from a tumor. This tissue is then examined for cancerous cells.
  3. Other tests include X-rays to see if cancer cells have spread to your jaw, chest, or lungs; a CT scan to check for and reveal any tumors in your mouth; PET scan to see whether the cancer has traveled to the lymph nodes or other organs like the lungs.

Prevention

  1. An excess of sun exposure on your face and lips increases the risk of oral cancer so you can start reducing the danger of getting this cancer by using a lip balm or cream with SPF regularly.
  2. Another way to reduce risk is alcohol and tobacco cessation.
  3. Eating a balanced diet containing fruits and vegetables
  4. Removing your dentures at night and using them the next day only after cleaning them
  5. Visiting your dentist on a regular basis so that she/he can warn you about any alarming change in your mouth.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have a sore kind of thing in my inner mouth. It pains when I roll my tongue over it. I also had a sore at the back of my teeth which felt like a bruise and burnt but it went away. The new sores are quite small and they pain a little. What could this be? I'm worried it is cancer.

It can be ulcer. Apply mucopain gel over it before eating. If you have any habit of smoking or tobacco chewing kindly stop it. If the ulcer did not heal. N prolonged more than two weeks. Visit dentist.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with t. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, c. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth.

Hello, Your dentist has advised you correct options. Composite bonding is not as durable as laminates/veneers. Always go ahead with a long term solutions. Thank you

Most probably you have a cavity in that tooth. Just consult a dentist. U might have to go for root canal treatment.
