You should absolutely NOT opt for home-made treatment of oral cancer. In fact, any sore or discolored area in your mouth which does not heal within two weeks should be examined by a doctor. There is virtually no home-made remedy that will work to cure oral cancer. The longer you wait to get treatment, the more you risk dying from the cancer. The five-year survival rate for oral cancer is approximately 50 percent.

The reason for this is because most oral cancers do not typically cause pain. As a result, they are often not diagnosed until after the cancer has reached an advanced stage or spread to the lymph nodes of the neck, making treatment more complicated and difficult.
