Q. What is Tongue cancer? I heard that smoking can cause tongue cancer. Is this true and what is tongue cancer?

A. Cancer of the tongue is a malignant tumor that begins as a small lump, a firm white patch, or a sore (ulcer) on the tongue. If untreated, the tumor may spread throughout the tongue to the floor of the mouth and to the gum (jaws). As a tumor grows, it becomes more life threatening by spreading (metastasizing) to lymph nodes in the neck and later to the rest of the body. The general term for this type of cancer is cancer of the oral cavity.

Hope this help.

Q. What are the symptoms of tongue cancer? I have a white patch on my tongue for quite a while. I tried scratching it off but it starts bleeding. Is it cancer?

A sore throat that does not go away
A sore spot on the tongue that does not go away
Pain when swallowing
