Oral cancer, or cancer of any kind is a serious condition. It is important to speak with a dental provider regarding the issues you're having and that you suspect you may have oral cancer.

Oral surgeons are specifically trained to spot symptoms, problems and other areas of concern when it comes to this condition. There are specific tests that can be done to check for oral cancer in a patient.

Signs of Oral Cancer

There are a few signs of oral cancer to watch out for. These signs and symptoms vary, but if you notice problems, it is important to speak with our oral surgeon about the symptoms you've been having.

•  White or red patch that does not go away or is not associated with other problems
•  Swollen lymph nodes in the neck or face
•  Pain in the ear, mouth or anywhere on the face
•  Pain occurs a lot while swallowing
•  Coughing can be a common symptom
•  Ulcers inside the mouth that do not heal
•  Bad breath
