How Can I Prevent Mouth Cancer?

Cancer of the mouth is one of the worst kinds to get. Often times they have to remove piece of your face in order to cure it. The result is deformation of your face and the process is very painful. The best way to prevent mouth cancer is to know what causes it.

The most common thing that causes it is the carcinogens in cigarettes. You should stop smoking altogether if you are a smoker. I know that is easier said than done but trust me, you do not want to have a piece of your face removed because you decided to not quit smoking.

An additional thing that causes cancer is chewing tobacco. It is just as bad as smoking cigarettes. Not only can you get oral cancer, but it will mess with your saliva glands and you’ll either end up drooling all the time or it could shut down your glands altogether and be stuck having a dried up mouth for ever.

An additional thing that could cause cancer but it still debatable is hot liquids. What I mean is extremely hot liquids that burn your mouth. You may drink hot coffees and chocolate drinks but just be smart and don’t drink it so hot that it burns your mouth.

Not only can your mouth get cancer, but your tongue as well. In case you happen to get cancer on your tongue, the only treatment is to start cutting parts of your tongue that are infected with the cancer cells. Often times this does not solve the problem and the medical doctors must keep cutting and cutting. In the end you are no longer able to talk since your tongue is what permits you to make the distinctive sounds which we call words.

If you are a smoker, instead of sitting down to smoke a cigarette, put on your exercise clothing on and work on getting the washboard abs that will make you look attractive and feel better of yourself. The best way to get ripped from the habit and addiction of smoking is to use an electronic cigarette instead.

An electronic cigarette doesn’t contain the extreme amount of cancer producing ingredients that cigarettes have. It’s cost effective as well. It feels and tastes just like a cigarette and also has nicotine so you do not suffer nicotine withdrawals. If you chew tobacco, try chewing gum as a substitute. It is way safer and tastes great. Whatever you do, try and stop doing the activities that cause cancer and live a long, healthy life.
