Tongue Cancer: Everything you need to know
Oral cancer or head and neck cancer can come in many forms, one of these is tongue cancer. Doctors and dentists are looking closely into the many cancers that can be found in the mouth to determine how to lessen their incidence at least, if it cannot be totally treated.
In tongue cancer, the squamuos cells are rapidly proliferating carrying the abnormal DNA (cancerous cells). The growth is rapid and uncontrollable. If detected during the early stages, it can be removed by surgery before it spreads to other parts of the body. What you can do is to take note of the appearance of your tongue and see if there is an abrupt change in sensation or appearance. You can also start determining the factors that can trigger this condition.
