Screening For Oral Cancer

5th / September / 2017

Oral cancer affects almost 50,000 people annually with nearly a fifth of those cases ending in death.

Screening for oral cancer is a fast and simple process and can be conducted by your dentist.

Annual screenings are advisable for those over eighteen and more often for smokers and users of tobacco products.

Warning signs of possible oral cancer include:

  • White or red blotches on the tongue
  • Persistent sore throat
  • A sore in the mouth that won’t heal

Your dentist can check for possible signs of cancer when checking your teeth and “screenings are non-invasive and pain-free”.
