Is it true you can get mouth cancer is you smoke cigarettes wrong?
Hmm.. it sounds ridiculous and I don't even smoke but someone I knew said it and I don't believe it.. But is it true?



not true

that isn't true but in honesty if you smoke its all wrong

Oh I am just so suprised that so many people wouldn't answer this question "cigarettes give you cancer regardless."
One in three people will succumb to the Big C in their lifetime, and one on six people smoke. That's still nearly one in three people getting cancer in their lifetime....sigh...eat tomatoes, leave out the seeds and you'll never get cancer...eat five portions of third world fruit and veg and outlive the producer's average life expectancy...fondle yourself in the shower to detect lumps and bumps...but what ever you do, don't succumb to tobacco, it calls the shots, even when the statistics contradict.
I heard once if you smoke while chewing gum your risk of mouth cancer is increased, but then Death & Taxes as they say...who's immune?

No it isn't true.

Smoking AT ALL can cause mouth cancer.

The risks are increased by smoking whilst or shortly after eating or drinking

How can you smoke wrong? You either smoke or you dont!

smoking is smoking theres no right or wrong way just quit

Any way you smoke can cause mouth cancer and a whole host of other health problems that can cause death so one way to look at it is that EVERY way you smoke is wrong. There's no way to smoke that will shield you from the possibility of cancer. I hope you make sure your friend doesn't believe he is immune from cancer just because he smokes a certain way.

I believe you are referring to reverse smoking. As dumb as it sounds there are people in certain countries that place the lit end of the cigarette inside the mouth!!!. And yes, this will increase the likely hood of developing a cancer because of the excess heat in addition to the cancer causing substances in tobacco. Smoking is the main cause of oral cancer, it will increase your risk by about 5 times. Excessive drinking of alcohol will increase your risk by about 3 times and the combination of smoking and excess alcohol will increase it by about 10 times. There are other risk factors, but these two are the main ones. Hope this helps.

Yes...see NHS Direct link below

so my dentist told me you can get cancer of the mouth if you smoke

You can even get cancer if you smoke them correctly!
Who woulda thunk it!?

beleave it or not but most cases of mouth cancer r caused through drinking alcohol, 80% ?????

The Ghost
you can get mouth cancer even if you smoke cigs the right way (whats the wrong way?)

You are at risk if you smoke period.

You can get mouth cancer from smoking cigarettes full stop, doesn't matter if its done the 'wrong' or 'right' way!!

Jewel J
Yes, you can. The wrong way to smoke them is to have them in your mouth and lit.

Well, there is no such thing as smoking "wrong" - if you are smoking PERIOD you are at an increased risk for cancer of the mouth and throat. There is no right way to smoke to eliminate or lower the chance of cancer - the only thing you can do to lower the risk is stop smoking. Take care :)
