Luanne's is the distinction I grew up with (Oregon). I always heard
"canker sore" never just "canker", and never heard of a "mouth ulcer".

(somewhere) but not heard "canker sore," but never "canker" as

Growing up in Kansas, I used only the term canker sore for what was in your
mouth. A cold sore was on the outside of your lip, where other people could
see it, not in your mouth. Do others make this distiction? Mouth ulcer
I've never heard.
