Oral Cancer Screenings
According to the American Cancer Society, over 30,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year. If caught early, oral cancer can be effectively treated. Fortunately, oral cancer can be diagnosed with an exam provided by our team.
The oral cancer exam is completely painless. We look for abnormalities in the mouth and feel the face, glands, and neck for unusual bumps. Some of the signs that are investigated are the appearance of white or red patches and sores.
If abnormalities are apparent, our doctors will implement a treatment recommendation that is right for you.
It is also important to note that over 75% of oral cancers are linked with avoidable behaviors such as smoking, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption. If you have concerns, please discuss them with your dental team.
