How to Avoid The Risk Factors for Mouth Cancer

September 18, 2014

Avoid the risk factors for mouth cancer. These include:


  • Smoking tobacco – cigarettes, roll-ups, cigars, pipes or cannabis.

  • Excessive alcohol consumption.

  • Using both tobacco and alcohol together – this greatly increases your risk.

  • Excessive exposure to sunlight or radiation (for lip cancer).

  • Chewing tobacco, betelguid, gutkha and paan.

  • A diet lacking in fruit and vegetables.

  • Viral infections, e.g., human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV can be spread through oral sex.
