Baseball Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn, was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer in 2010. After a four-year battle that involved radiation therapy and two operations to remove tumors, Gwynn lost his life to oral cancer on June 16, 2014. He was 54 years old and left behind a wife and two children.

Gwynn blamed his oral cancer on his longtime habit of using smokeless tobacco during his twenty-year career as a Major League Baseball player for the San Diego Padres. Gwynn is not the first iconic baseball player to lose his life to oral cancer after years of  smokeless tobacco use.

While it is commonly known that tobacco is carcinogenic and is used by many professional baseball players, the Major League has not banned use of smokeless tobacco. While smokeless tobacco is discouraged in the Major League, it has been banned in the  professional Minor League.

The Oral Cancer Foundation explains that there are “two distinct pathways by which people come to oral cancer.” The first is through
tobacco and alcohol use and the other through exposure to the HPV-16 virus. The American Cancer Society offers the fact that almost 9 million people use smokeless tobacco products. They further explain that three out of four people who use chewing tobacco have
non-cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions in their mouths.

In addition to causing oral cancer, tobacco is a risk factor for 25 diseases. The American Cancer Society explains that smokeless tobacco can cause a variety of oral problems including: gingivitis, bone loss around the roots of teeth, cavities, tooth decay, tooth loss, staining and discoloration of teeth, and leukoplakia, mouth lesions that can become cancerous.

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, tobacco contributes to about one third of cancer in the United States. Even though tobacco use is preventable, it is the most global cause of cancer and is expected to “make a greater claim on health than any other disease.”

With yet another tragic loss to cancer, we are reminded of the risks associated with tobacco use, and the need for oral cancer awareness and screenings.
