Oral Cancer Screening

oral-cancer-screening

Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the United States, killing at a rate of one person per hour every day. 50% of all patients diagnosed with oral cancer die within 5 years.

The frequency of oral cancer in adults under the age of 40 has increased 60% over the past 30 years.

Risk factors including tobacco use, frequent alcohol consumption, a compromised immune system, a history of cancer, or the presence of Human Papillion Virus; all these increase the probability of getting this deadly disease.

We use a specialised light to detect cancerous and pre-cancerous areas. Ask one of our knowledgeable staff about obtaining your oral cancer exam.
