When we say head and neck cancers, cancers of the lips, tongue of the mouth and the palate. The inner cheek and the nose and throat area fall into this group as well.
Oral cavity cancers are the second most common head and neck cancer.
The oral cavity, which includes areas such as the lips, tongue, top of the mouth, hard palate, and buccal mucosa, is a more dangerous area compared to other head and neck cancers due to the course of the cancer.
