Lip cancers are growths of abnormal cells that develop on the lips. They are the most common type of oral cancers. These are cancers that develop in thin, flat cells—called squamous cells—that line the mouth, tongue, cheeks, sinuses, lips, throat, and hard and soft palates. Lip cancers and other kinds of oral cancers are types of head and neck cancers. Certain lifestyle choices, such as smoking, drinking, and tanning, increase your risk of developing lip cancers. Dentists are the first line of defense against lip cancers, as they are typically the first to notice signs of lip cancers, often during a routine dental exam.
