How are oral cancer screenings performed?
At King East Dental, we use a combination of visual and manual examinations to check for any abnormal tissue in the oral cavity. We may also utilize specialized methods such as fluorescent light diagnosis or brush biopsy to detect abnormalities that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
What symptoms are linked with oral cancer?
Symptoms of oral cancer can include sores that don't heal, red or white patches in the mouth, mouth pain, and/or lumps that form on the lips, gums or tongue. They can also present as a sore throat or voice hoarseness that persists, and growths on the neck or face.
Does everyone need to undergo oral cancer screenings?
These preventive screenings are especially vital for anyone over 40 years old, those who have a family history of oral cancer, and those with lifestyle risk factors such as smoking and drinking. Even if you don't fit into any of these categories, it's important to stay on top of your oral health and be screened regularly for any abnormalities.
