Mouth Cancer / Oral Cancer

Mouth cancer, also known as oral cancer, refers to cancerous cells found in the tissues of the mouth. Some early signs of mouth cancer include sores in the mouth that don't heal, lumps or thick patches on the lips, gums, tongue or lining of the mouth, painful swallowing, ear pain or a sore throat that does not go away. At Galaxy Care Hospital, our Mouth Cancer Specialists in Pune use the latest diagnostic techniques to accurately detect and diagnose mouth cancer. Some of the diagnostic tests we perform include dental examination, biopsy and imaging tests.

Mouth Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Once diagnosed, the stage and severity of cancer will determine the appropriate treatment. Our treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. For early-stage cancers, surgery may be used to remove the cancerous tissue. Advanced mouth cancers may require more extensive surgeries like removal of parts of the tongue, jaw bones or soft palate. We also offer radiation and chemotherapy to destroy any remaining cancer cells and lower the risk of recurrence.
