What are early signs of tongue cancer?

Ulcer

Cancer
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

Can tongue cancer be cured in 4th stage?

Depends

Cancer
Cancer it a tricky deal, and I would never say never. It will probably require aggressive chemotherapy, radiation, and possible surgical intervention, but it would be best to consult with your oncologist and the oral/maxillofacial surgeon who will be taking care of you.

How does tongue cancer develop?

Tobacco, alcohol

Open-uri20140406-6502-n3ux8p
The majority of people who get tongue cancer have a strong history of tobacco use (either smoking or chewing) and/or alcohol use. The combination of the two increases the risk even more. The best thing you can do to reduce your risk is to eliminate tobacco use and moderate your alcohol consumption.

How to tell if I have tongue cancer?

You can't

Throat_cancer
The most common cancer in the mouth is on the lateral(side) borders of the tongue. However you cannot determine if you have cancer without a thorough exam and biopsy. There are many lesions of the tongue. Most not cancerous. See your dentist or oral surgeon for a consult about your problem and concerns.

Is it possible to get tongue cancer?

YES..

Open-uri20121116-14852-u3ad7u
This is likely due to tobacco use (including smokeless), and alcohol use. If use is great, cancer can come early, or present by about 50 years of age. There are all kinds of mutations that occur in cells due to this and these cause cancer cells to develop. Oral cancers like this can present as non-healing, painful ulcers. Whatever you do, don't use tobacco or smoke if you don't want this.
