Like most patients, becoming and remaining proactive about this oral health issue can at first be quite difficult. The good news is that this is exactly the type of approach you should have if you want to be able to find and effectively treat the problem if it should occur. To make sure you’re on the right track and understand this type of cancer, we suggest you consider some important information.

Prevention Is Comfortable

You will come in for an oral cancer screening, which is thoroughly comfortable. Determining whether there are any changes in the lining of your oral cavity is not something that requires an invasive process. Instead, it’s a primarily visual exam that includes using advanced technology to check in on the tissues in your mouth. If changes are present, we can see them long before they turn into an advanced and more difficult to treat form of the disease.

It Can Affect A Widespread Area

We encourage you to remember that oral cancer can affect your mouth and the surrounding tissues. As a result, if you notice any type of changes or new sensations, it’s important to let us know. While you may be more likely to feel concerned if a change affects your tongue or gums, disease may affect the rest of your oral cavity, your throat, your lips, and your face, too. Remember, screenings can uncover the early development of cancer long before you recognize any extremely obvious symptoms, so keep up with your dental care.
