Oral cancer is something we want to catch early and treat quickly! At regular check-ups we will check for any signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer screenings are conducted by carefully examining your lips and mouth. A small camera is also used to find abnormalities. Your dentist will check these images for any changes at every check-up.
Oral cancer can be found on the:
- Inner lining of the cheeks
- Roof of the mouth
- Floor of the mouth
Common symptoms of oral cancer:
- A sore that won’t heal
- A bleeding sore
- A lump in the lining of your mouth
- Sore throat
- Tongue pain
- Difficulty swallowing
