What Is Oral Cancer

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Dr. Darren Huddleston
What Is Oral CancerOral cancer may present itself in various ways, both visually and physically. There is a possibility that oral cancer is present if you have a white or red patch inside your mouth or on your lips. The skin may feel thicker or lumpier, or there could be an abscess or erosion that won't heal.

Using tobacco products is one of the most significant risk factors for head and neck cancers, including malignancies that affect the oral cavity and the oropharynx. Most patients diagnosed with these malignancies had a history of smoking or other forms of tobacco exposure, such as tobacco chewing. People who smoke have a significantly increased chance of developing previous malignancies than those who do not smoke.

Oral Cancer Is Preventable

Maintaining a healthy oral hygiene routine is essential to assist in the process of keeping the mouth cavity clean. Reducing the use of cigarettes and alcoholic beverages is necessary since they are the primary carcinogens that cause mouth cancer. Last but not least, reducing your exposure to carcinogens by eating a diet that is both healthy and well-balanced will help lower your chance of developing mouth cancer.
