Pathophysiology: Mouth cancer refers to cancer that develops in any of the parts that make up the mouth. Often oral cancer is only discovered when the cancer has metastasized to another location, most likely the lymph nodes of the neck. Prognosis at this stage of discovery is significantly worse than when it is caught in a localized intra oral area.Signs and symptoms of mouth cancer may include: A sore that doesn't heal A lump or thickening of the skin or lining of mouth A white or reddish patch on the inside of mouth
Treatment for mouth cancer depends on cancer's location and stage, as well as your overall health and personal preferences. It may be Surgery, Radiation therapy, Chemotherapy, or Targeted drug therapy.
