Common Symptoms of Oral Cancer

Persistent sores on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within 2 weeks should be taken seriously, as they may be symptoms of oral cancer, said Dr. Abbas Karimi, head of the 13th International Conference on Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery which will be held on February 24-27 at Olympic Hotel, Tehran.
Unexplained bleeding in the mouth, ear pain, difficulty chewing or swallowing and lumps or bumps, rough spots/crusts/or eroded areas on the lips, gums or other areas inside the mouth are among the other symptoms of the disease, Mehr News Agency reported.
According to figures men face twice the risk of developing oral cancer as women and men over 50 face the greatest risk. Also cigarette, cigar, or pipe smokers are six times more likely than nonsmokers to develop oral cancers.
