Oral Cancer Screening
Aside from oral hygiene, oral cancer screening is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
The goal of this diagnostic procedure is to recognize the early stages of oral cancer, when there is a higher chance for effective treatment. If left undetected and untreated, mouth cancer can lead to a variety of serious problems, and can even be fatal.
What are the *symptoms of oral cancer?
- White or dark red patches in your mouth, or on your lips or tongue.
