Oral cancer can appear in different forms and can affect all parts of the mouth, tongue and lips. Oral cancer can appear as a painless mouth ulcer that does not heal normally. A white or red patch in the mouth can also develop into a cancer. You should be aware of any unusual lumps in your mouth or jaw area and any persistent hoarseness.
