Managing Mouth Sores

Mouth problems, such as mouth sores, sometimes occur during cancer treatment. With a sore mouth it’s tempting to cut down on meals, but you need to keep eating to build up your strength. Many mouth issues are caused by cancer medicines and, the good news is, they usually improve over time with proper care. Ask your health care team for resources.

The experts at Cancer Care Ontario have created a guide for people who have cancer-related mouth problems. It can be used by patients, their family, friends or caregivers as a good starting place to learn more. It does not replace advice from your health care team.
