Oral Cancer Screening

Every day one person dies hourly from oral cancer, which is why dentists now screen constantly.

 

An Oral Cancer Screening Exam is to provide early detection of cancerous and precancerous lesions. Oral cancer can be found in the oral cavity and the oropharynx, the part of the pharynx that lies between the soft palate and hyoid bone in the mouth.

Symptoms of oral cancer include:

The exam is painless, quick, and can be done during a regular checkup. It is highly recommended by most doctors to have an oral cancer screening exam in order to limit chances of cancer or to detect it early enough to treat it.
