The Symptoms Of Canker Sores Are Almost Similar To The Symptoms Of Tongue Cancer?
Night. I am now suffering from canker sores on my lower tongue, it’s been about a week. The pain that I feel is similar to tongue cancer, such as: going to drink food and saliva, it hurts to the ears, and now the pain is added to the throat, if I open my mouth or say it hurts like I’m being stabbed. What I want to ask is that it is a symptom of tongue cancer ,? Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The complaint you mentioned can be a symptom of tongue cancer, but it can also be a common symptom of thrush accompanied by inflammation of the esophagus. Aloe cancer is an abnormal growth of a malignant period. The period originates from the tongue tissue, from the lower tongue, the edge to the base, all parts can experience it.
Tongue cancer can affect anyone. The high-risk groups are people who:
1. Have a smoking habit
2. Have the habit of drinking alcohol
3. Has a history of HPV infection in the mouth
4. Poor oral hygiene
5. Having the condition of natural teeth or dentures that are not flat or sharp so that it often injures the tongue
6. Poor eating habits
Are you included in one of the groups above?
You should immediately check the condition of your tongue with a specialist oncologist. The doctor will conduct a medical interview and physical examination. Further tests will be carried out if necessary, such as a biopsy (ie taking a sample of diseased tongue tissue to be examined under a microscope). If it is true that it is the growth of tongue cancer, the treatment will be based on the stage of the disease. You can read more here.
Meanwhile, consume natural food sources that are high in antioxidants, such as kiwifruit, lemon, dragon fruit, soursop fruit, oranges and others. Avoid consuming cancer-triggering foods (foods that are carcinogenic), which are foods that contain preservatives and flavorings.
Thus hopefully useful.
