What is Oral Cancer?
Oral cancer is a type of head and neck cancer
that affects the mouth. It can form in
the lining of the cheeks, gums, roof of the
mouth, tongue, and lips. Oral cancer symptoms can
often be the signs of other less serious
illnesses, so it is important to consult your
doctor or dentist if you are experiencing any
of these changes in your oral health. During
your annual dental check-up, your dentist will
also screen for oral cancer. Those who use
tobacco products may receive a more in-depth
screening based on their risk. Anyone can get
oral cancer, but the risk is higher if you are
male, over age 40, chew tobacco or drink alcohol
or have a history of head or neck cancer.
Frequent sun exposure is also a risk for lip
cancer.

  • Treatment of Oral Cancer
  • Surgery
  • Surgery to remove the tumor  Your surgeon may
  • cut away the tumor and a margin of healthy tissue
    that
  • surrounds it. Smaller cancers may be removed
    through
  • minor surgery. Larger tumors may require
    more-extensive
  • procedures.
  • Surgery to remove cancer that has spread to the
    neck  If cancer cells have spread to the lymph
    nodes in your neck, your surgeon may recommend a
    procedure to remove cancerous lymph nodes and
    related tissue in the neck (neck dissection).
  • Surgery to reconstruct the mouth  After
    anoperation to remove your cancer, your surgeon
    may recommend reconstructive surgery to restore
    the appearance of your face or to help you regain
    the ability to talk and eat.
  • Maxillectomy  Maxillectomy is the removal of
    the hard palate if that is affected. A special
    denture called prosthesis can alter the defect
    caused in the hard palate resulting from the
    surgery. Mouth's surgery involves removal of thin
    sections of lip tumors. Immediate examination of
    the sections for potential cancer cells allows
    the surgeons to decide whether or not the cancer
    is completely removed.
  • Laryngectomy  Laryngectomy is the surgical
    removal of larynx (voice box). This is done when
    there is risk of food entering the trachea and
    infecting the lungs, as a result of removal of
    tumors of tongue or oropharynx. By removing the
    larynx, the trachea is attached to the skin of
    the neck thus eliminating the risk of infecting
    the lung and potential pneumonia.

  • Neck Dissection  Neck dissection is a surgical
    procedure involving removal of lymph nodes in the
    neck that are known to contain cancer cells. The
    side effects of this surgery include numbness of
    the ear, difficulty in raising the arm above the
    head, discomfort to the lower lipall of which
    are caused by different nerves involved in the
    surgery.
  • Tracheostomy  Tracheostomy is an incision made
    in the trachea to facilitate breathing for oral
    cancer patients who may develop considerable
    swelling following surgical removal of the tumor
    in oral cavity. This prevents any obstruction in
    the throat and allows easy breathing.
  • Radiotherapy  Radiotherapy uses doses of
    radiation to kill cancerous cells. It may be
    possible to remove the cancer using radiotherapy
    alone, but it is usually used after surgery to
    prevent the cancer from re-occurring.
  • Internal radiotherapy  Internal radiotherapy is
    a type of radiotherapy often used to treat
    cancers of the tongue that are in their early
    stages. It involves sticking radioactive wires or
    needles directly into the tumour while you are
    under a general anaesthetic (put to sleep). The
    wires or needles then release a dose of radiation
    into the tumour.
  • Chemotherapy  Chemotherapy is often used in
    combination with radiotherapy when the cancer is
    widespread, or if it is thought there is a
    significant risk of the cancer returning.
    Chemotherapy involves the use of powerful
    cancer-killing medicines.
