Brief Answer:
These are nothing but veins. Not oral cancer.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and have checked the attached images. Let me assure you that these are nothing but veins under the tongue and it is absolutely normal for them to be like this. These are not indicative of oral cancer and you need not grow concerned.
