The signs of mouth cancer
November is mouth cancer month so I thought you should see the following.
This condition can develop in most parts of the mouth, including the lips, gums and occasionally the throat.
The most common symptoms of mouth cancer are sore mouth ulcers that don’t heal within several weeks, persistent lumps in the mouth that don’t go away, and persistent lumps in the lymph glands in the neck that don’t go away. Other symptoms may include: pain or difficulty when swallowing
changes in your voice or speech problems unexplained weight loss bleeding or numbness in the mouth
a tooth, or teeth, that become loose for no obvious reason
difficulty in moving your jaw
red or white patches on the lining of your mouth – these are common and are very rarely cancerous, but they can sometimes turn into cancer.
