Oral cancer is an abnormal, potentially malignant growth on any of the soft tissues of your mouth and throat. It can occur in the gums, tongue, roof or floor of the mouth, cheek, and perhaps less visibly in the tonsils and salivary glands. The most common type of oral cancer is a squamous cell carcinoma, a cancer of the cells lining the tissues of your mouth and are exposed to the outside world. Other forms of cancer, albeit less common, include oral malignant melanoma and adenocarcinomas. These are cancers of the skin’s pigment cells and mucous and salivary glands of the mouth respectively.
