Tongue Cancer Risk Factors

Cancer of the tongue can affect anyone. Most cases are linked to tobacco use and heavy alcohol consumption.

The best way to prevent tongue cancer is to avoid the use of all forms of tobacco and limit your alcohol consumption.

Many tongue cancers are first discovered during routine dental examination, so it’s important to see your dentist regularly, especially if you are at an increased risk for tongue cancers.
