The interior of the mouth is normally covered by a different type of “skin”, the mucosa, which is soft and pink. Any change in the appearance of the mucosa can be a warning signal for the initiation of a pathological process. The most serious pathological process is oral cancer. The following points may occur at the start of a pathological process or the development of oral cancer.
1) Red (white) or white (white) areas of mucosa
2) An ulcer that does not heal easily and bleeds
3) An enlargement or a hard area inside the mouth
4) Sore throat for a long time or voice mildew (shortening)
5) Difficulty in chewing and talking
These conditions can occur on the lips, cheeks, palate, gums, around the teeth, tongue, face and neck.
The pain is usually not in line with the pathological picture and strangely it is not related to oral cancer. However, a patient who has maxillofacial or oral pain without apparent etiology may be a candidate for cancer.
We recommend self-examination for such injuries on a regular basis, and if you find something that concerns you, do not hesitate to book an appointment for a clinical trial. I will be happy to answer your various questions. Don’t ignore any suspicious lesion in your mouth, it can be a warning.
