The best way to stay protected from oral cancer is to get annual oral cancer screenings. With over 30,000 new cases diagnosed each year, oral cancer has become the sixth deadliest cancer in the world. Screening for oral cancer is quick and easy, with no pain or discomfort involved.
The rate of oral cancer is rapidly rising among young people, women and non-smokers. Early detection of oral cancer is vital. There are many different places in the oral cavity and maxillofacial region in which oral cancers commonly occur, including:
Oropharyngeal Region (throat)
It’s recommended to have an oral cancer screening with every 6 month checkup. Most dentists perform an examination of your mouth during a routine dental visit to screen for oral cancer. Give our office a call to schedule your next checkup and screening for oral cancer.
