Oral cancer or mouth cancer usually appears as growths or sores which refuse to heal or go away. These symptoms can lead to some life-threatening conditions if they are not treated properly or at an early stage. There are no guaranteed cures for cancer, it is advisable that if you encounter any of these symptoms, you should get yourself checked by a doctor. These are 10 symptoms one should watch for when it comes to mouth cancer.

#10 A sore throat

This is a symptom of the common cold. However, a prolonged or never ending sore throat is a strong indication of something much more serious than a common cold. The person will develop soreness in the mouth and will feel like there is something stuck at the back of the throat. If you have this feeling for a long time, go to a doctor asap.
#9 Difficulty moving your jaw

A common sign of mouth cancer is the inability to move your jaw. If you have trouble chewing, swallowing, or moving your tongue, it is advisable that you consult a doctor immediately.

#8 Loose teeth

If there is a loose tooth or many teeth that have become loose for an unexplained reason, consult a doctor immediately. Another sign of oral cancer is if you have a tooth socket that has not healed for a long period of time.

#7 Bleeding inside your mouth

Any random bleeding inside of your mouth can be a sign of mouth cancer which absolutely should not be ignored. If you’re mouth also feels numb, it is in your best interest to make an appointment with your GP.

#6 Unexplained weight loss

Sudden or drastic fluctuations of weight can be symptoms of cancer as well. If you seem to notice an extreme weight difference in your body without any reason, consult a doctor.

#5 Small changes in your voice or speech pattern

If you or people who are close to you observe any small, unexplained changes in the tone of your voice or a difference in your speech pattern, you should get it checked out immediately.

#4 Difficulty in swallowing

One of the most common signs of mouth cancer is if the patient has a lot of difficulty in swallowing food or water or even saliva. The swallowing will be painful and the person will not be able to swallow anything.

#3 Lumps on your neck

Unexplained and stubborn lumps in your neck can also be one of the most major signs.

#2 Lumps in the mouth

Unexplained and persistent lumps inside the mouth that cause a lot of discomfort and pain.

#1 Mouth ulcers

If you have developed mouth ulcers that are not healing or have not healed for a long time, it may be a sign of mouth cancer.

Quick rise in young people with Type 2 diabetes is alarming

Hundreds of young people are being treated for Type 2 diabetes, a 41% rise in just four years.

The condition occurs when the body cannot make enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels.

It is often linked to obesity and is most commonly seen in adults, where it can lead to a range of health problems such as heart disease and strokes.

Some 715 people under the age of 25 received treatment for the disease in England and Wales during 2016/17 and 78.6% of them were obese.

The number of cases is up from the 507 registered in 2013/14, according to the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

But the true number may be much higher, as the RCPCH recorded only those young people being treated in paediatric units, not by a GP.

Professor Russell Viner, president of the RCPCH, said: “A rise in Type 2 diabetes of this magnitude is alarming and shows that the childhood obesity epidemic is starting to bite.

“It’s also concerning that we might not be seeing the full picture.”

The Local Government Association, which represents 370 councils in England and Wales, said more support was needed, especially for obese children and ethnic minorities, as almost half of those treated in 2016/17 were black or Asian.

Izzi Seccombe, chairwoman of the LGA’s community wellbeing board, said: “These figures are a sad indictment of how we have collectively failed as a society to tackle childhood obesity, one of the biggest health challenges we face.”

She called for “urgent action”, saying: “Type 2 diabetes can be a lifelong debilitating illness and these figures will only multiply if we delay.

In an experiment, the researchers demonstrated that it is possible to more than double the amount of time, from the clinical standard approach, that red blood cells can be stored. At present, red blood cells can be stored for a maximum of 42 days. Using this new approach, it was possible to extend this up to 100 days.

Alongside the immediate practical applications, the researchers also believe that this discovery could enable fundamental scientific research by making it possible to study liquid phase reactions at a much lower temperature than is currently possible.

Heck, who knows — although this approach studiously avoids actual freezing, maybe it could prompt advances in the kind of long-term cryogenic preservation process that scientists, sci-fi authors, and, allegedly, Walt Disney have speculated about for years.

“We are now focused on increasing the volume of the preserved liquid phase from the 1-100 milliliter range to 500 milliliters to enable mass preservation of samples,” Usta continued. “[We also want to translate] our approach to the preservation of exotic cell types and organs, such as the liver, since our center already has a very active cell and organ preservation research thrust. Through collaborations, we are also looking into further understanding our observations by conducting [additional] computational and laboratory experiments.”

A paper describing the work was recently published in the journal Nature Communications.
