April is awareness month for oral, head, and neck cancers, which arise in the nasal cavity, sinuses, lips, mouth, thyroid glands, salivary glands, throat, or voice box. Cancers of the head and neck account for 6% of all malignancies in the U.S.
Pay attention to the following signs to help prevent oral, head, and neck cancer: a sore in your mouth that doesn't heal, constant pain, lumps or patches in your mouth, pain around your teeth, changes in your voice, and a lump in your neck. For more info, go to oralcancerfoundation.org or headandneck.org.
