Like any cancer, early detection is key to treatment and survival. According to the American Cancer Society, about 50,000 people develop oral cancer each year and about 9,700 people will die from it.
Oral cancer is also one of the most curable cancers when diagnosed early. That’s why our team incorporates a thorough oral screening into every dental exam.
An oral cancer screening is simple and painless and is easily performed as part of your regular check-up.
During your regular dental hygiene exam, we will search for any bumps on your inner cheek, gums or tongue that look or feel unusual. Dr. Simone and Dr. Lowe will review your health history and ask if you have had any soreness in your mouth, and then check for any signs of oral cancer on your head and face.
If we see any signs of oral cancer, we will recommend you visit your regular doctor for additional consultation.
Oral cancer can occur in any area of your mouth, including your cheeks, gums, lips, tongue, throat, salivary glands, pharynx, larynx and sinuses.
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, please contact your dentist or doctor immediately:
