Why going to China for cancer treatment?

Oral cancer refers to cancers that develop in the oral cavity, which includes the lips, gums, tongue, inner lining of the cheeks, roof of the mouth (palate), and floor of the mouth. This type of cancer can also affect the oropharynx, which is the part of the throat located behind the mouth.

Oral cancer typically originates in the squamous cells lining the oral cavity and oropharynx. Risk factors for oral cancer include tobacco use (including smoking and smokeless tobacco), heavy alcohol consumption, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, prolonged sun exposure (for lip cancer), and a diet low in fruits and vegetables.

Symptoms of oral cancer may include persistent mouth sores, swelling or lumps in the mouth, difficulty chewing or swallowing, persistent sore throat, and changes in voice. Early detection and treatment of oral cancer are crucial for improving outcomes and reducing the risk of complications.

Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or a combination of these approaches, depending on the stage and location of the cancer. Regular dental check-ups and oral cancer screenings are important for early detection and prevention.
