In brief: A few

A sore, ulcer, swelling, or pain in the mouth.
If such a lesion persists beyond a couple of weeks, see an oral surgeon for evaluation and possible biopsy.

In brief: Mouth Cancer

Any lesion that lasts more than two weeks requires a clinical exam and usually a biopsy in order to determine what it is.
Some lesions that look relatively benign are not and others that look very ominous are not dangerous. Early detection is crucial! if you suspect or just want peace of mind, see an oral surgeon or ENT specialist.
