In brief: Unfortunately, None

Like most dangerous diseases and conditions, there are no symptoms in the early stages.
However, there can be some characteristic visual changes, but they're often hard for people to see, since they're in the mouth or throat. Any sore that doesn't go away in a couple of weeks needs to be examined. Any area that changes color, itches, bleeds, or becomes raised and/or rough needs to be seen too.

These present as nonhealing ulcers that can be painful. Usually they are seen at about 50 years of age, unless a person is particularly susceptable and has a lot of tobacco and drinks a lot of alcohol.

In brief: Ulcers, hoarseness.

Oral cavity cancers present as nonhealing ulcers that can be painful.
Hoarseness may be an early sign of laryngeal cancer.
