I finished my 45 radiations and 4 treatments of chemo two months ago. I had squamous cell cancer in my mouth. This is my second time 11 years later. Problem is I now have a mouth sore in same spot? I have no saliva at this point so wondering if it is thrush or if cancer could come back in less than 2 months?? Or dry mouth causes thrush?j

    Have you visited your oncologist or ENT about this? What did they advise? Saliva helps the mouth heal so it may be related (to mouth ulcers, for example, but cancer return doubtful) but my first thought is to consult your physician.
