Symptoms of Gum cancer: Introduction
Symptoms of gum cancer can vary among individuals and differ depending on the stage of advancement of gum cancer. There commonly are not any symptoms in early gum cancer. If there are symptoms, they may not be severe enough to be noticed or cause concern.
Typical symptoms of gum cancer include a sore or lesion on the gums, especially if it does not heal within two weeks. This lesion can bleed easily. There may also be a painful or painless lump or mass on the gums, difficulty swallowing, and problems with speaking or chewing.
There may also be a tumor, thickening or discolored lump on the gums. Other symptoms include unusual sensations on the gums, such as numbness or pain. However, lumps or lesions due to gum cancer are not always painful.
Other symptoms of gum cancer can include swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck. This is called lymphedema and may be a sign that the gum cancer has spread beyond the gums into the deeper tissues of the mouth and neck. In advanced stages, gum cancer can spread through the lymph nodes and blood to other parts of the body where the cancer cells can form another cancerous tumor....more about Gum cancer »
