April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month.  Over 49,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or throat cancer this year.  The American Dental Association (ADA) and the Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF) have teamed up to remind everyone that regular oral cancer examinations from your dental professional are the best method to detect oral cancer in its early stages.  Regular dental visits can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, and early detection is the key to cancer being treated more easily.

The signs and symptoms of mouth cancer may include a sore that doesn't heal, a lump or thickening of the skin or lining of your mouth, a white or reddish patch on the inside of your mouth, tongue pain, jaw pain or stiffness, difficult or painful chewing, difficult or painful swallowing or feeling that something is caught in your throat.  If you notice any of these signs or symptoms and they last for more than 2 weeks, see your doctor or dentist to get checked.

Research has identified certain risk factors that raise your risk for developing mouth cancer.  These risks include using tobacco of any kind (such as cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and snuff), excessive use of alcohol and excessive sun exposure to your lips.  The human papilloma virus version 16, which is sexually transmitted, is related to the increasing incidence of mouth cancer in non-smoking patients.  It is likely that there is a complex interaction of many external and internal factors that play a role in the development of oral cancer.

There are certain lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk of mouth cancer which include avoiding excessive sun exposure to your lips by wearing sunscreen, eating fruits and vegetables on a regular basis which are high in vitamins and antioxidents, limiting alcohol intake and quitting smoking and the use of other tobacco products.

Your mouth is one of your body's most important early warning systems.  Don't ignore any suspicious lumps or sores that last more than 2 weeks.  Should you discover something suspicious, make an appointment for a prompt examination.  Early treatment may well be the key to complete recovery.
