Oral Cancer

What are some of the signs and symptoms of oral cancer?

As part of a comprehensive exam, the dentist will perform a screening for oral cancer. To start, the dentist will review the patient’s medical and dental histories and ask if there have been any changes to his or her oral health or overall health. The dentist will then carefully check in and around the oral cavity as well as the head and neck area for any of the following signs or symptoms that may indicate the presence of a problem:

  • Mouth ulcers or sores that do not heal
  • Lumps
  • Red or white patches
  • Persistent swelling of unknown origin
  • Pain when swallowing, a painful tongue or a continuing ear or neck ache
  • A constant feeling that something is stuck in the throat
  • Tenderness or numbness in the mouth or lips
  • Loose teeth
  • Jaw pain or stiffness

If a suspicious lesion, tissue abnormality or unusual symptoms are present, the dentist will refer the patient for a more comprehensive assessment. Early detection of oral cancer offers the most favorable outcomes of care.
