Signs You Could Have Early Oral Cancer


Posted on 12/21/2020 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Any abnormalities of the mouth should be assessed immediately. The following information gives you more details about the warning signs of early oral cancer.

Early Oral Cancer - Some of the Symptoms


According to the website, CancerCenter.com, early indicators of oral cancer can be mistaken for other health complications, such as a cold or toothache. If these kinds of symptoms continue to persist, you need to contact us for an oral cancer screening. Symptoms triggered by oral tumors may result from cancer or other less serious condition. Some of the more common symptoms of oral cancer include mouth sores that do not resolve themselves, recurring mouth pain, a thickening or lump in the cheek, or a red or white patch on the gums, lining of the mouth, tonsils, or tongue. Some oral cancer patients complain of a sore throat or report that they feel like something is caught in their throat. They may also find it difficult to chew or swallow. Denture wearers that have oral cancer frequently complain of swollen jaws, which make it difficult for them to wear their dentures. Some patients state they have problems moving their tongue or jaw.

Symptoms that Mimic Other Health Problems


Some of the oral cancer symptoms that mimic other health conditions include loose teeth, often associated with gum disease; pain in the teeth or jaw, which may be interpreted as tooth sensitivity or TMD; or persistent halitosis, which may be associated with dental decay. Other patients may lose a noticeable amount of weight or discover a lump in their neck.

If any of the above symptoms continue to persist, you will need to schedule an oral cancer screening. Don't procrastinate if you notice these warning signs. Take action right away so you can address the disease and prevent it from spreading. If you have not done so already, give us a call to arrange an appointment for an oral cancer screening today.
