The symptoms of tongue cancer, according to Cedars Cinai, include a lump on the side of the tongue or a lump that bleeds easily if it is touched.
The NHS adds that it can lead to changes in speech, such as a lisp or painful mouth ulcers.
It’s the sixth most common condition around the world although less common in the UK.
8,300 people in the UK are diagnosed with mouth cancer each year.
