on

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.

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.

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.

Sixteen other states are seeking to impose new restrictions on abortion.

Alabama’s Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth said: “Roe must be challenged, and I am proud that Alabama is leading the way.”

Eric Johnston, who founded the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition that helped draft the bill, told NPR: “The dynamic has changed.

“The judges have changed, a lot of changes over that time, and so I think we’re at the point where we need to take a bigger and a bolder step

Report disclosed that the development has cause alot of controversy and 22 Senators voted against including an exception for rape or incest in Alabama’s new draconian abortion lawout.

The bill would allow abortion in cases where the mother’s life is at serious risk.

Doctors could face 10 years in prison for attempting to terminate a pregnancy and 99 years for actually carrying out the procedure.

A woman who has an abortion would not be held criminally liable.

The bill’s text says more abortions have been carried out in the US since the 1973 Roe v Wade decision than people killed in “German death camps, Chinese purges, Stalin’s gulags, Cambodian killing fields, and the Rwandan genocide combined”.

The law – the strictest in the US – now goes to Republican Governor Kay Ivey for approval.
