Oral Cancer

Possible Signs and Symptoms

  • a white or red patch in the mouth

  • a sore, irritation, lump, or thickening in the mouth

  • hoarseness or a feeling that something is caught in the throat

  • difficulty chewing or swallowing

  • difficulty moving the jaw or tongue

  • numbness of the tongue or other areas of the mouth

  • swelling of the jaw that causes dentures to fit poorly or become uncomfortable

See your dentist or physician if any of the above symptoms lasts for more than 2 weeks.

Have an Exam

A head and neck exam should be a routine part of your dental visit. Ask your dentist or physician to do the exam at least once a year.

Lower Your Risk

  • Donít use tobacco products--cigarettes, chew or snuff, pipes, or cigars

  • If you drink alcohol, do so only in moderation

  • Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (research suggests that such a diet might lower the risk of oral cancer)

Remember: Early detection saves lives!
