Why You Need Oral Cancer Screenings

Woman Getting Checked For Oral Cancer
While you may not want to know if you’re at risk of having oral cancer, it is important to be screened. Certain factors can make you more susceptible, including smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages. However, anyone could be at risk. For this reason, you should visit our office every six months for cleanings, exams, and your oral cancer screenings for early detection.

Thereare nearly no early warning signs or symptoms of oral cancer. But oral cancer can appear in several places throughout the mouth. The gums, tongue, the roof of the mouth, and the back of your throat are all locations where lesions can be present. Typically the first sign of oral cancer will present with small red or white spots in the mouth. If you have had a sore in your mouth that hasn’t healed, this is also something you will want to discuss with our dentists.

While our dentists, Dr. Kitts, and Dr. Hewett, will do a visual screening during a routine cleaning or exam appointment, you can have an oral cancer screening on its own, if you feel that you may be at risk, or if you’ve noticed something unusual. We would be more than happy to help get you the answers you want.

How Do We Test for Oral Cancer?

There are two methods of testing for oral cancer. The first is through a visual examination, to identify if there are any unusual growths or lesions present. The second part of testing is doing a biopsy on suspected cancer sites. This requires cutting a portion of the lesion and examination for cancerous cells.
