Oral cancer especially on posterior, lateral (side), ventral (floor of the mouth) surfaces of the tongue are particularly considered more dangerous as compared to rest of the oral cavity, as they have more tendency for loco-regional spread and tendency for metastasis (spread to other distant organs). definitive treatment is always surgical approach, which sometimes is supplemented with either radiotherapy or chemeotherapy. there is NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE other than those mentioned. ALSO an EARLIER DIAGNOSIS and EARLIER SURGCAL TREATMENT will definitely render more advantages. so don't delay and rush to a good cancer hospital.......
