2. Mouth Sores
Getting a sore in your mouth is quite common. In fact, many people have had canker sores and other areas in their mouth that is just sore. Most of the time a mouth sore is not a real cause for alarm. However, one of the main things that can distinguish a common canker sore or another mouth sore from one that is cancerous is a pain.
Canker sores are typically very painful. A mouth sore that is associated with tongue cancer is often not painful at all. A canker sore will typically go away after several days. If you experience persistent canker sores or if you are concerned about any type of sore that has appeared in your mouth, you should schedule a visit with your doctor or your dentist right away. This is the only way to fully determine the underlying issue and to get a treatment plan in place if necessary.
