Who does it affect?

Oral cancer is two times more likely to be found in men than women. Also, the most cases of oral cancer are found in men over the age of 50. Genetics could result in the development of oral cancer along with smoking and an excessive consumption of alcohol.

How to treat it

Like most forms of cancers, oral cancer is surgically removed and followed by radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatment. Therefore, it is important to visit your dentist for yearly oral exams so that they can identify any cancerous looking spots. Regular self-examination of the mouth and lymph nodes can help identify oral cancer in its early stages.
