Cancers of the cheeks, lips, tongue and throat can happen to anyone at any time although some people are more susceptible to these cancers due to genetic factors, age or gender. 

The three biggest causes of oral cancers are:

  • Smoking and use of tobacco products
  • Excessive alcohol
  • HPV, or human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease

Regular check-ups at the dentist should always include an oral cancer screening which can help catch oral cancer early -- to greatly increase the chances of successful treatment. More detailed information can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/top-3-causes-of-oral-cancer/
