Oral cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer in humans, but many people do not know anything about it.

The British Daily Star reported signs and symptoms of oral cancer as follows:
1 – The presence of thrombi and tumors on the surface of the tongue and the roof of the mouth, and within the cheeks, lips and gums.
2. Ulcers in the whole mouth
3 – red spots or white in the lining of the mouth
4 – pain and difficulty in swallowing (difficulty in swallowing)
5. Changes to sound
6. Unwarranted weight loss
Bleeding or numbness in the mouth
8. Inhalation of teeth without obvious cause
