Lip cancers are abnormal cells that grow out of control and form lesions or tumors on the lips. Lip cancer is the most common type of oral cancers. Identified as kinds of oral cancers included with head and neck cancers.
These cancers develop in thin, flat cells that are called “squamous cells” that line the lips, mouth, tongue, cheeks, sinuses, throat, and hard and soft palates.
The first step for lip cancer prevention is to develop an awareness approach. Protecting lips from extensive exposure to guard mutations in genetic makeup is vital. When changes affect the cells of lips and if the body fails to repair these changes, uncontrolled growth of those abnormal cells can lead to lip cancer.
