Oral Cavity

The oral cavity includes all the elements of the mouth, lips, and front part of the tongue. Nearly 90 percent of oral cancers begin in the cells in the lining of the mouth. The most common locations for this cancer are the tongue, oropharynx, gums and mouth floor. It is important to identify the origin of oral cancer because this impacts treatment options.
