Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a devastating disease. Every year, it affects over 40,000 Americans, and only about half of those affected survive longer than five years. It can affect any area of the mouth - your lips, your tongue, your cheeks, your gums, the roof of your mouth or the entrance to the throat. No matter where it strikes, it can affect the normal functions of your mouth, including eating and speech. Oral cancer needs to be detected, and treated, early.
