Symptoms of Tongue Cancer
Symptoms of Tongue Cancer: Introduction
Symptoms of tongue cancer can vary among individuals and differ depending on the stage of advancement of tongue cancer. There commonly are not any symptoms in early tongue cancer, or symptoms may not be severe enough to be perceptible or cause concern.
Typical symptoms of tongue cancer include a sore or lesion on the tongue, 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 tongue, difficulty swallowing, and problems with speaking or chewing.
There may also be a thickening or discolored lump on the tongue. Other symptoms include unusual sensations on the tongue, such as numbness or pain. However, lumps or lesions due to tongue cancer are not always painful.
Other symptoms of tongue cancer can include swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck. This is called lymphedema and may be a sign that the tongue cancer has spread beyond the tongues into the deeper tissues of the mouth and neck. In advanced stages, tongue 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 Tongue Cancer »
