Thus, oral mucositis is mostly found in cancer patients. The condition arises when the radiation from therapy affects the mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal tract of the human body. This causes the decomposition of the mucosal cells. Moreover, this eventually leads to ulceration and inflammation of the mucosal lining. This is why the condition is called mucositis.

Oral mucositis is a gastrointestinal inflammation that can cause many problems in the human body. It can affect the general nutritional intake of a person. The mucosal lining is affected, which makes it difficult for an affected person to eat food. The open wounds of the mucosal lining also make you prone to infection.
