What is Oral Cancer? Oral Cancer Treatment Chandigarh

Oral cancer can start as a small patch or an ulcer and may resemble a common problem. The only difference between a common problem and cancer is that oral cancer lesions do not resolve independently and do not respond to standard antibiotic therapy or topical ointments. These lesions may spread rapidly and can occupy the mouth if left untreated. 

Causes of Oral Cancer

Cancer begins in the squamous cells of the oral cavity lining. The cells become cancerous when their DNA changes and starts to multiply rapidly. Certain activities can increase your risk of developing cancer:

  • Cigarette smoking
  • Smoking a cigar or pipe
  • Using tobacco or related products
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol for an extended time
  • Being under the sun for a long period without the application of any protective cream or lotion
  • Human papillomavirus or HPV
  • Family history of cancer

Symptoms of Oral Cancer – Oral Cancer Treatment Chandigarh

Common symptoms:

  • Soreness on your lips or inside the mouth
  • Bleeding inside the mouth
  • Ulcers that do not heal within two weeks
  • Rough spots or crusty areas inside the mouth
  • Unexplained numbness, pain, or tenderness on one side of the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing, speaking, or swallowing
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Earache
  • Unexplained fever
  • Unexplained weight loss


Got Invisible Aligners at Bristles

Been using clear aligners recommended by Dr. Kanish for sometime now. They’re really comfortable and nobody actually notices them unless you mention. Fantastic solution to teeth alignment without the use of metal braces! I’d definitely recommend at least a consultation with the Bristles Dental Studios’ team if you’re bothered by the current alignment of your teeth..

Thank you so so so much. Kindest regards Renu and Hardevinder Mann.

Got regular dental check up and esthetic fillings done are Bristles Dental Studios

Since childhood dentists have always scared me. However, this perception changed when I visited Bristles. Dr. Palak is the sweetest dentist I’ve come across. She makes the patient feel comfortable, undertakes the process slowly and smoothly by constantly informing the patient about the procedures. What to expect at Bristles:- 1. Amazing hygiene. 2. Competent staff. 3. Smooth procedures. 4. Genuine prices. 5. Lots of treatment options. What NOT to expect at Bristles:- 1. Overpriced services. 2. Misguidance 3. Rushed treatment. This place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Visited the clinic in pain for a Root canal treatment

I went with a deep broken tooth and I was recommended root canal by Dr. Palak at Bristles Dental Studio. I have seen a friend in the past cry in pain after root canal and which is why I was really afraid to get it done. Dr. Palak understood my fears and made sure I was comfortable during the root canal process by using her specialised pain prevention processes. I didn’t have to bear a lot of pain and my root canal was done smoothly. I’m happy with my experience here.

Treatment options available – Oral Cancer Treatment Chandigarh

Diagnosis of Oral Cancer

Physical examination

Our dedicated team of surgeons will conduct a thorough examination of the inside of your mouth, aiming to detect any early signs of cancer. They will also meticulously explore the head and neck region, checking for unexplained lymph node swelling or growth. Early detection is key, and you play a crucial role in this process. 

Exfoliative cytology

Also known as brush cytology, this technique is most commonly used to detect and confirm cancerous lesions. The lesion is scraped off with a brush to exfoliate the cells, and the specimen is then studied under the microscope.

Incisional biopsy

A small incision is made on the lesion to obtain a small piece of the specimen. The specimen is studied for the signs of a cancerous lesion.

When treating oral cancer, Bristles Dental Studios Chandigarh offers a range of options tailored to each patient’s unique needs. These include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.


Primary tumor surgery

It is the process of removal of the tumor from inside the mouth directly or through the neck.


The mandible or the lower jaw is removed with the cancerous lesion involving the jaw. It is sometimes concerned with eliminating some portion of the tongue in a combined surgery called the commando operation.


The upper jaw or the maxilla is sometimes infiltrated with cancer cells, like in the case of basal cell carcinoma. This surgery also includes the removal of a hard bony palate, which, in some cases, forms the roof of your mouth.

Neck dissection

There are high chances of lymph nodes infiltrating with cancerous lesions inside the mouth. The swollen or painful lymph nodes are indicatory signs of the presence of a cancerous lesion. Neck dissection is the surgery involving the removal of such lymph nodes while saving vital structures.

Radiation therapy

Radiation therapy, a highly effective treatment, involves using a solid energy beam to target and eliminate the cancer cells, halting their uncontrolled growth. This approach has shown promising results in many cases, offering hope and optimism in the face of oral cancer.

Chemotherapy and Immunotherapy

Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs to fight the cancer cells, whereas immunotherapy utilizes the body’s immunity to fight against cancer.
