Mc site of oral cancer overall

The most common site for oral cancer is the tongue, followed by the floor of the mouth, the buccal mucosa (inner lining of the cheeks), the lips, and the hard palate (roof of the mouth). Other less common sites include the tonsils, the salivary glands, and the throat.

It’s worth noting that oral cancer can develop in any part of the mouth, and the specific location of the cancer may vary depending on factors such as the individual’s age, gender, and exposure to risk factors such as tobacco and alcohol use. Therefore, it’s important to regularly monitor any changes or symptoms in the mouth and to seek medical attention if there are any concerns. Early detection and treatment can greatly improve the prognosis for oral cancer.
