Cure ?: Curing someone of cancer is a very strong statement? That's not to say it's wrong. Time will tell if they are cured, let' s put our faith in god and trust in our doctors and hope they can stop or remove the cancer and go from there. Day by day and try to enjoy each one.

Depends: There are dozens of different types of mouth cancer, each with its own type of treatment and likely outcome at a particular stage. No other area of science is studied so intensively, and your aunt has the right to the best we can offer, and to be told herself how the odds change as she moves forward. She must also make her own decisions on accurate information. Good luck to you both.
