The Very First Change of the Tongue with the Development of Cancer
KeywordsEarly lingual cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, tongue pain
We describe the case of an elderly man with a 3-month history of pain at the tip of his tongue due to a lingual cancer. The lesion appeared slightly depressed and reddish. Our images show the very first changes in the tongue with the development of cancer. Patients with tongue pain often visit the internal medicine department first, so highlighting this case will help physicians detect lingual cancer quickly.
