Oral (Mouth) Cancer
At Any Age
Oral cancer today occurs twice as often in males as in females. It’s usually diagnosed in people over the age of 40 years old, but can be found at earlier ages.
The fastest growing segment of the oral cancer population are young, non-smoking individuals who are sexually active. Through sexual contact you can contract the human papillomavirus (HPV), which also causes cervical cancer.
