Oral Oncology

Oral cancer is a cancer that develops in the mouth or throat tissues. Almost all cancers of the mouth occur in squamous cells, the type of cells that line the mouth, tongue and lips. These are called squamous cell carcinomas (cancers). Not all tumors in the mouth are cancer. Some are benign and some are precancerous, meaning they may become cancer. Oral cancers are most often discovered after they have spread to the lymph nodes of the neck. Early detection is important in oral cancer survival. Tobacco use is one of the biggest risk factors for oral cancer. This includes smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes, as well as chewing tobacco. The survival rate after one year for all stages of oral cancer is 81%. After five years, the survival rate is 56%, and after 10 years it’s 41%. The removal of tumors of large size could possibly affect your abilities associated with jaw and mouth such as chewing, swallowing, or talking.

 A reconstructive surgery might be needed to rebuild the bones and tissues of the face which are removed during surgery. The recovery from each type of treatment will vary.  The effects of this surgery include symptoms such as pain and swelling, but removing small tumors usually has no associated long-term problems. People who are diagnosed with advanced oral cancer need reconstructive surgery and some rehabilitation during recovery. Reconstruction can involve dental implants or grafts to repair the missing bones and tissues in the mouth or face.
