Brief Answer:
Dental consult to check for sharp teeth

Detailed Answer:

If someone is presenting with recurrent mouth ulcers I would try to understand these causes first:
1) Sharp edges of the teeth or other dental reasons - See a dentist for this
2) Unbalanced diet, very common amongst young and staying away from the home.
3) Stress at work, personal reasons

I recommend using DISPRIN paste (prepare it with DISPRIN tablet in 3ml of water) and apply over the ulcers 30 minutes before you have food or drink.
You can take Tab RIBOFLAVIN, two tablets after meal for a month.

The oral cancer has no basis in your situation you should not worry about it. This worry can trigger ulcers.
