Posted in: Tonsil Cancer by Dr. Tarang Krishna
How common is tonsil cancer? In order to answer this, there are two important facts you should look at:
First: It is a rare type of cancer, but its real. Its risks must be avoided at all costs.
Second: Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is common, and it initiates the development of cancer cells in mouth and throat, which is the major cause for a variety of diseases including tonsil cancer.
Cancer can develop anywhere in the mouth - in gums, tongue, area down below the tongue, in soft palate’s, and also in tonsils. But how common is tonsil cancer? The Answer remains unknown. Today with right kind of treatment all types of cancer are treatable and curable.
Tonsil cancer usually results due to squamous cell carcinoma, but in some cases, they may also result due to lymphoma, which is an immune borne disease. Lack of immunity causes such type of cancer.
Being Unaware about the Cancer Symptoms is a Problem
Early symptoms of tonsil cancer are not easy to detect as they are very common, for example, a sore throat or a problem in swallowing or speaking. Such signs are easily ignored and may have resulted due to cancer or from another disease, or from a climate change.
