Is that a piece of food caught in your teeth?
Made you look! And a good thing too. Sometimes patients are so nervous about what they’ll find – especially oral cancer – that they just don’t want to see. But visual monitoring is essential for early cancer detection. It’s important that you check your mouth and let us know about sores or ulcers that bleed easily or do not heal, white or red patches or lumps that don’t go away, and lingering soreness.
With early detection, most oral cancer can be cured, yet 70% are identified at an advanced stage. That’s why we always check your tongue, lips, cheek lining and gums at every regular visit.
Screening oral cancer is a team effort. We rely on you … and you know you can count on us.
