Oral cancer is a kind of cancer that affects some part of your mouth; this may be your lips, the inside of your mouth, the salivary glands, the tongues, or even the insides of the cheeks. Now the good news is, is that when detected early, oral cancer is very curable and has a very high success rate in getting rid of it completely. Oral cancers caused by human papillomavirus, or HPV, have been on the rise in men over the past 30 years, according to research published in a February issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology . In both genders, HPV can be transmitted through oral sex; the virus is also the prime cause of cervical cancer. Oral cancers tend to grow fast and feel hard. Cancer beginning in the small salivary glands commonly appears as a small swelling.

Oral cancer will be diagnosed in an estimated 35,720 people in 2009, and an estimated 7,600 people will die of the disease. Men are diagnosed with oral cancer more than twice as often as women. Oral cancer is largely preventable and if caught early can be treated, but it has generally had a very low profile compared to breast and cervical cancers for example. Every patient who has a check-up with a dentist is visually screened for oral cancer, and the dentist is best placed to notice the warning signs and refer for investigation. Oral cancer attacks more men than women (male/female ratio = 2/1), and more blacks than whites (black/white ratio = 2/1). The survival rate is better for Caucasians (54%) than for Afro-Americans (34%).

Oral cancer - represented by red, white or discolored lesions, patches or lumps in or around the mouth - is typically painless in its early stages. As the malignant cancer spreads and destroys healthy oral tissue, the lesions or lumps become more painful. Oral cancer is one of the most expensive forms to treat, with an advanced case costing upward of $200,000. Patients with oral cancer treated in its early stages face less chances of post-treatment disfigurement. Oral cancer accounts for about 8% of all malignant growths. Men get oral cancer twice as often as women, particularly men older than 40.

Oral cancer accounts for approximately 3% of all cancers. People diagnosed with oral cancer have a 5-year survival rate of approximately 50%. Oral cancers include those of the lip, tongue, mouth, parts of the pharynx and piriform sinus. Around a third of oral cancers are diagnosed in the mouth and a slightly lower proportion on the tongue. Oral cancer can develop in any part of the oral cavity or oropharynx. Most oral cancers begin in the tongue and in the floor of the mouth.

Oral cancer can form in any part of the mouth or throat. Most oral cancers begin in the tongue and in the floor of the mouth.
