ORAL CANCER SCREENING
Oral Cancer Screening and Detection in Binbrook
During an oral cancer screening your dentist will perform a thorough and diligent examination of your mouth, teeth, and gums to check for signs of cancer and other potential problems. By identifying the presence of cancer early, appropriate treatment and preventative actions can be taken. This also reduces the chance of the cancer spreading and further pain or complications. Dentists look for lesions which can be easily treated if caught early.
Patients who chew or smoke tobacco, cigarettes and partake in heavy alcohol use are more susceptible to cancer. Heavy sun exposure and poor dietary and oral hygiene habits can also put you at risk.
Commonly affected areas
Areas most affected by oral cancer are the lips, tongue, gums, inner cheeks, the roof of your mouth, floor of your mouth, as well as the back of the mouth and throat.
Signs to look out for include the appearance of red or white patches in the mouth, open mouth sores, loose teeth, sudden pain or discomfort when eating or speaking, swelling, and frequent earaches.
Cancer can strike at anytime, even in young and healthy individuals. If you, or a loved one experience any of the symptoms listed here contact our office for a screening just to be safe.
