Symptoms can be vague, often leading patients to suspect routine ailments, and putting off seeing a doctor. Any sores or lumps that seem to resist healing, or a sore throat that persists longer than expected should raise concerns.

Other symptoms might include:

  • Lump(s) in the neck
  • Vocal changes
  • Growths inside the mouth
  • Bloody saliva
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Skin changes
  • Frequent or persistent ear aches

By far, the most effective anti-cancer measures rely on regular routine visits to your doctor and dentist. Vigilance is the key to preventing possible trouble. Your doctor and/or dentist can discover hot spots, even before symptoms become obvious.

The earlier the detection, the higher the likelihood of a complete cure.
