Oral Cancer Screening
Like all cancers, it's important to find oral cancer as early as possible when treatment outcomes are much more favorable than if treated during later stages. Early stages of oral cancer can easily be missed, which is why we will make sure to check for it during your regular check-up appointments. It only takes a few minutes and is mostly a visual exam.
During the exam, we will check your face, neck, lips, lymph notes, and entire mouth for signs of cancer. If a suspicious spot is detected, we will discuss with you how to proceed in diagnosing the suspected lesion. This may involve a biopsy or a culture collection to send off to the lab for testing.
