Question Would a MRI of the head, neck, and spine detect oral (mouth) cancer?

Hi, I have been using smokeless tobacco for over ten years now and I have always been scared of developing mouth cancer. Over the last five years I have had numerous MRI's and Cat-Scans of my head, neck, and spine due to some neurological problems. During some of the MRIs they used contrast. I was wondering if these procedures would detect the prescence of oral cancer. I do self examinations of the mouth, gums, and checks and don't see anything unusual. But I am not a doctor and really couldn't tell if a spot was precancerous or not.

Would welcome anyones comments.

Thanks

BRC
