Oral cancer can have many causes, including genetics, lifestyle factors such as smoking or heavy alcohol use, infections, or environmental exposures like excess sun. Although you can’t control the genes you inherit, you do have control over lifestyle choices and sun exposure. In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, take a few minutes to find out if you’re at increased risk, whether it’s due to lifestyle choices or heredity factors you can’t control, and what you can do to help prevent getting the disease.
