disorders of the oral cavity

A common disease is cancer of the mouth cavity which is a malignant tumor that is heavily related to lifestyle and whose incidence varies from region to region in Italy.

DIAGNOSIS

Oral cavity cancer is almost always caused by smoking, alcohol and / or improper eating.

Possible alarm signals:

  • persistent swelling on the mucous membranes of the oral cavity;
  • reddish white spot that does not go away;
  • a wound that does not heal

If recognized at an early stage, oral cancer can be successfully treated. Diagnostic delays are generally due to the lack of knowledge of this type of cancer that is often mistakenly confused with other more common problems, such as dental abscesses.
