In brief: Varied
Oral cancer can present itself in various ways.
This makes it very important to have it checked by a professional if you see anything suspicious. Some common presentations are: white patches red patches mixed red and white patches a persistent sore that won't heal unexplained bleeding difficulty or pain when swallowing loose teeth difficulty wearing dentures lump in the neck ear pain hoarseness.
