Signs of Palate Cancer

Posted on 10/30/2016 by Boeckel
A woman noticing a lump on her lip!Nobody wants to think about getting cancer, but the truth is that it happens. Since it can happen to you, you need to know the signs of palate cancer. If you see any of these signs, or have any other reason to believe something may be wrong, please come see us right away!

Discolored Patches

A cancer is basically a lump of cells that are not reproducing or functioning properly. If you notice any patches on your palate-especially if the patches appear to be reddish or whitish in color-it may be a sign of cancer.

Sores That Bleed Or Will Not Heal Properly

If you injure yourself, you would expect to bleed. But if you have a sore that bleeds for no apparent reason, or if you have a sore that just won't heal, you may be seeing a symptom of cancer. Come see us and let us check you out just to be sure.

Unexplained Sensations

If you have pain, numbness, or tingling in an area and there seems to be no reason for it, you may be feeling one of the symptoms of cancer. Although it could be nothing, it's best to have us take a look at it.

Lumps Or Other Abnormalities

If you have developed a lump or some other unusual formation in your mouth, it may be due to palate cancer. We can take a look and run some tests to be sure, but this is not something that you should wait to take action on. The stakes are too high, and it's better to find out earlier rather than later. Come see us right away.
