Oral Cancer Screening

Home » Services » Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screening is the physical and visual examination of the patient’s oral cavity and connected tissues.

Visual Exam

The dentist will check all major areas of the mouth and face. He or she will look for asymmetries, bumps, swellings, ulcerations, patches of color and other abnormalities.

Physical Exam

The dentist will touch the cheeks, jaw area, under the chin, throat area and the head to feel for unusual masses or nodules.

If an abnormality is discovered during the examination, the dentist will refer the patient for further tests. Results that necessitate further investigation do not necessarily mean cancer. And even if it is cancer, catching the disease and treating it in its early stages can be life-saving.

If you are a high risk for oral cancer or it’s been years since you’ve had oral cancer screening, schedule for an appointment today.
