In brief: Not enough evidence

There is not enough evidence to suggest that using mouthwash that contains alcohol will increase the risk of mouth cancer.
The most important risk factors for oral cancer are smoking and drinking more than three drinks a day.

In brief: Several

There are several sexually transmitted infections that can cause blistering, ulceration, and hardening of the tissue due to local infection or inflammation.
Advanced syphilis with a hard, ulcerated chancre was classically confused with an oral cancer and vice versa. See a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
