Ayurvedic Treatment of Tongue Cancer


Tongue cancer is a type of mouth cancer or oral cancer which originates in the cells of the tongue. This cancer typically causes tumors or lesions on the tongue of the affected individuals. The potential risk of tongue cancer or oral cancer is fairly high for people who indulge in excessive smoking or drinking, or older men who are more than 50 years of age.

Tongue cancer can either occur on the front part of the tongue or at the base of the tongue, close to where the tongue is attached to the bottom of the mouth. When tongue cancer affects the front part of the tongue, it is called Oral tongue cancer and when it affects the base of the tongue, it is called Oropharyngeal cancer.

Tongue cancer which occurs most commonly is called Squamous cellcarcinoma. This cancer affects those parts of the body which mark the presence of thin and flat squamous cells. These parts include the surface of the skin and the tongue the lining of the mouth, throat, nose, thyroid, and larynx; and the lining of the respiratory and digestive tracts.

The exact cause of the occurrence of tongue cancer is not known. However, it is believed that some of the most apparent triggers of this cancer are: family history of the disease, chewing tobacco/betel, smoking, alcohol consumption, improper diet, contracting a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, poor oral hygiene, and past cases of squamous cell cancers. Moreover, some other known risk factors of tongue cancer include Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), and exposure to sulphuric acid, asbestos, formaldehyde, and certain other chemicals.


The two main symptoms of tongue cancer are:

  • A Painful tongue
  • The development of a sore on the tongue.

Apart from these two primary symptoms, some of the other possible signs of tongue cancer which are similar to the symptoms of other oral cancers include:

  • Pain while swallowing or chewing food
  • Pain in the jaw or throat
  • Stiffness of tongue or jaw
  • Persistent discomfort in the throat
  • Numbness in the mouth
  • Unexplained bleeding from the tongue
  • A lump on the tongue which does not go away
  • A tongue ulcer which does not heal
  • A red/white patch on the lining of the tongue or mouth.


The common treatments of Tongue cancer are: Surgery, Radiation therapy, and Chemotherapy. In addition, targeted drug therapy is another tongue cancer treatment which is mostly combined with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy as part of the overall tongue cancer treatment plan.
