Is my mouth sore lip cancer?
Jul 4, 2001

I have been getting sores on my lips which become infected. Could it be cancer?

Response from Dr. Dezube

Although cancer is often described as "the sore which doesn't heal", sores can be many many things other than cancer. Please see your health care provider. The vast majority of sores in the mouth are infectious in nature.

Is it Kaposi's sarcoma or Basal Cell Carcinoma?
My CD4 count is way too high; I had lymphoma
