Oral Cancer Screening

The Importance of Regular Oral Cancer Screenings

Early detection of oral cancer significantly improves the effectiveness of treatment. Regular screenings are key in identifying any unusual changes in your mouth, throat, and adjacent areas.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?

An oral cancer screening involves:

  • A visual examination of your mouth, face, neck, and lips for any signs of cancer.
  • A physical examination to feel for lumps or abnormalities in the head and neck area.
  • Discussing your health history and any risk factors you might have.

Who Should Get an Oral Cancer Screening?

Everyone can benefit from regular oral cancer screenings, especially those with a history of tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption, or previous oral cancer diagnosis.

Follow-Up and Care After Screening

If we find any signs of concern during your screening, we’ll recommend the appropriate follow-up steps, which may include further tests or referrals to specialists.
