Cancer is an uncontrollable growth of cells which invade and cause damage to surrounding tissues. Oral cancer is the mouth and the pharynx (the back of the throat) cancer. It generally occurs on the floor of the mouth, gingiva (gums), cheek lining, or lips.
Cancer is unnoticeable in its early stages. Symptoms of cancer in its early-stage include a non-healing ulcer, persistent red or white patches, unusual surface changes, sudden tooth mobility without apparent cause, progressive swelling or enlargement, unusual oral bleeding, and prolonged hoarseness.
Its late-stage symptoms include a dysesthesia or paresthesia of lips or tongue, otalgia, trismus, chronic serous otitis media, airway obstruction, dysphagia, persistent pain, and cervical lymphadenopathy.
Nowadays, it is a major health problem and generating awareness about it is quite essential. With help of customised rubber wristbands, you can make it possible.
