Oral cancer: First, oral cancer at your age, unless you smoke (anything) or abuse alcohol, is rare. Greater probability that you may be dealing with an infection. Please see both your Dentist and you Physician for examinations. Once cause can be determined, appropriate treatment can be administered.
