The general symptoms of oral cancer do vary from individual to individual, yet some common symptoms are, swellings or erosions on tongue or oral mucosal surface, velvety white speckled patches on the cavity, unexplained bleeding and numbness, difficulty in chewing or Swallowing are a few associated complaints.

While examining, your dentist might look for sores or above mentioned signs. Any feature that might look troubling will be smaller for biopsy.
