What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

What Is Oral Cancer?

Fighting cancer begins with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Oral cancer is the uncontrollable growth of malignant tumors in the oral cavity (mouth). It most often occurs on the roof and floor of the mouth, including the surface of the tongue, the lips, the gums, the inner cheeks, in the tonsils, and the salivary glands.

According to the American Cancer Society, about 51,540 people were expected to receive a diagnosis of oral or oropharyngeal carcinoma (throat cancer) in 2018. Moreover, about 10,030 deaths were predicted.

Oral Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The many different types of oral cancer are:

Squamous cell carcinoma

Over 90 percent of cancers in the mouth and oropharynx are squamous cell carcinoma. This cancer manifests in an abnormality in the squamous cells that line the throat and mouth, which are usually flat and arranged in a scale-like way.

Verrucous carcinoma

5 percent of mouth tumors are verrucous carcinoma or “snuff dipper's cancer,” a slow-progressing disease comprising squamous cells.

Lymphomas

The tonsils and base of the tongue are common sites for malignant lymphoma of the oral cavity.

Minor salivary gland carcinomas

The salivary glands are susceptible to several oral cavity cancers, including adenoid cystic carcinoma, polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.

Oral Cancer Symptoms in Men and Women

Signs of oral cancer may reveal itself through:

  • Red or white patches on the lining of the oral cavity
  • Mouth ulcers or sores that bleed or do not heal
  • Loose teeth and poor-fitting dentures
  • Tongue discomfort
  • Jaw pain or stiffness
  • Difficult chewing and swallowing
  • A recurrent sore throat
  • Hoarse voice
  • Persistent pain in the neck or ear

Seek immediate medical attention if you have persistent symptoms. Detecting early signs of oral cancer is key to improving your prognosis and life expectancy.

Oral Cancer Causes

Like most cancers, the exact cause of oral carcinoma is not clear. Several cases of mouth cancers are linked to risk factors, although some patients will develop the disease with no known risk factors.

Most people diagnosed with oral cancer are heavy smokers and drinkers who consume several sticks of cigarettes a day and over 21 alcoholic beverages per week. The combination of tobacco and alcohol is particularly dangerous. People who smoke and drink alcohol in excess are six times more likely to get oral cancer than those who do not.

Mouth cancers are among the most preventable malignancies. Some ways to minimize your risk include:

  • Avoiding tobacco in all forms
  • Drinking alcohol in moderation
  • Making routine visits to the dentist
  • Removing dentures at night and cleaning them daily
  • Limiting sun exposure
  • Eating a healthy diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables

Detection and Diagnosis

An oral cancer screening exam is part of most routine dental checkups, in which a dentist will examine the neck, head, and mouth for lumps or irregular tissue changes. He or she will also inspect for sores, including any signs and symptoms mentioned above.

If your dental care provider suspects oral cancer, the use of mucosal staining, chemiluminescent light, and imaging techniques may be necessary to highlight suspicious areas. A biopsy may then be ordered to determine the presence or extent of oral cancer. There are different types of biopsies available for cancer detection, and your doctor will decide which one is best.
