Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
You should be vigilant if your father experiences thrush, red or white patches, lumps, or thickening in the oral cavity that does not heal to cause difficulties when eating and talking. Most likely, this condition occurs due to an illness, for example oral cancer.
Oral cancer can include malignancies in the lips, gums, tongue, inner cheeks, floor of the mouth, and palate. This condition occurs due to DNA mutations that cause cells in the oral cavity to proliferate abnormally, excessively, and out of control. The trigger is often associated with smoking, smoking tobacco, consuming alcohol, excessive exposure to the sun, lips, HPV (Human Papillomavirus) infection, and impaired immune system. There are many types of oral cancer, and each of them can have different potential dangers. Not only complaints as your father is experiencing now, cancer of the oral cavity can also make teeth more easily rocking or dislodged, the mouth feels painful to spread to the ears, weight drops dramatically, fatigue, and also easily tired.
In addition to oral cancer, several other conditions, for example oral infections, benign tumors in the oral cavity, malnutrition, disorders of the immune system (for example due to lupus, HIV, Behcet's disease), etc., are also worth watching out for.
Better, consult your father IMMEDIATELY to the doctor so that it can be properly evaluated for possible conditions that can trigger your father's complaints. Other tests, such as biopsies, can also be recommended by your doctor to your father. If it is true that the doctor suspects that his condition is related to oral cancer, he is likely to be referred to a specialist oncology surgeon for further treatment.
For now, tell your father to do the following tips first:
Do not slough off lumps or spots on his mouth
Diligent brushing teeth, gargling with antiseptic mouth rinses
Don't do free sex
Drink more, eat balanced nutritious food
Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol
Do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
Always live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
