What Are Mouth Cancer Sores?

 

Q:

What are mouth cancer sores?

A:

Mouth cancer sores may refer to mouth canker sores.
Minor canker sores are virtually harmless, except for the annoying discomfort they can cause your mouth. They may be caused by several things, including stress, hormonal shifts, food sensitivities, and toothpaste.
Canker sores can be extremely painful. Thankfully, the pain tends to lessen over a few days, and the sore usually heals up by itself within two weeks.
A canker sore looks like an ulcer or sore. They are typically round with a depressed center and may appear to be white, grey or yellow. The outer rim of the canker sore is typically red.

If you have a canker sore that doesn’t heal within three weeks, you should go to see a dentist.
