The signs of mouth can­cer

Daily Mirror - - STARS & TOONS -

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.
