    A lot of people do not discover the warnings of oral cancer, which can be like sores in their mouths. If you have red bumps in your mouth, you may frequently ignore them, which can cause major issues in the future. So if you see something, no matter how small, make an appointment with your dentist.

      Thank you for your comment, dear colleague. Because of the fear of facing a dentist many people will actually wait until their sores worsen before they even think of making an appointment. Finding a dentist you respect and trust is highly recommended so he can diagnose and refer your case if necessary.
