The diagnosis of oral cancer can be life-changing and before you are diagnosed with an advanced stage of oral cancer, it is important to always check whether you are at risk or not.
Like most symptoms of different types of cancer, the early symptoms of oral cancer mimic those of other medical conditions that are not as severe or critical in nature. One of the first symptoms is pain in the mouth, which can be attributed to a condition as insignificant as a cold or toothache. If the symptoms persist for a really long time, it is important to make sure that diagnosis is also sought at the earliest. Most symptoms that a patient with oral cancer goes through are due to other, less serious medical conditions.
