What Are Some Early Warning Signs of Oral Cancer?

Early warning signs of oral cancer include:

  • Persistent mouth sores
  • White or red patches in the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • A lump or thickening in the cheek, tongue, or throat
  • Persistent ear pain

Individuals should seek medical attention if they notice any of these symptoms persisting for more than two weeks, as early detection can significantly improve treatment outcomes.
