Oral Cancer

Signs and symptoms that could indicate oral cancer include:

  • Any sign of irritation, like tenderness, burning or a sore that will not heal;
  • Pain, tenderness or numbness anywhere in the mouth or lips;
  • Development of a lump, or a leathery, wrinkled or bumpy patch inside your mouth;
  • Color changes to your oral soft tissues (gray, red or white spots or patches), rather than a healthy pink color;
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking or moving the jaw or tongue;
  • Any change in the way your teeth fit together.

Make an appointment with me or with your physician if you notice any of these changes.
