While oral cancer isn’t one of the ones we frequently hear about, it is extremely deadly. Many patients don’t notice any symptoms until the cancer has advanced, making it more difficult to treat and survive. During your oral cancer screening we’ll evaluate your gums, tongue, cheeks and overall oral health to look for any risk factors. Risk factors can include sores, rough spots and other areas that don’t typically exist. Many patients are not capable of properly diagnosing oral cancer from home, it is recommended to trust in a professional. If any risk factors are noticed, you will be referred to a cancer specialist for further testing and treatment.
Early diagnosis of oral cancer is extremely important to increase chances of survival. You should be receiving an oral cancer screening at least twice a year with your routine, preventive care.
