Malignant mouth part neoplasm is a type of cancer that affects the mouth, including the lips, tongue, gums, and other parts of the oral cavity. It is caused by abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells in the mouth, which can spread to other parts of the body. Symptoms of malignant mouth part neoplasm include a sore or lump in the mouth that does not heal, bleeding in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, and changes in the way the teeth fit together. Treatment for this type of cancer typically involves surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.
