Ulcer: Unfortunately there aren't gray early signs. We look for white patches on the tongue, but there are many white areas, so this isn't helpful for the layperson. Ulcers, pain and/or bleeding may be signs.

A few: Ulcer that won't head. lump, soreness, swelling. See Oral surgeon or ENT doc for exam.
