Oral Cancer Screening

What Is Oral Cancer Screening and Why Is It Important?

Oral cancer screening involves examining your mouth for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions. Early detection increases the chances of successful treatment and can be life-saving.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?

The screening includes a visual inspection of your mouth and throat for any signs of cancer, such as sores, white patches, or abnormal lumps. We may also palpate the neck and jaw area.

Who Should Get Regular Oral Cancer Screenings?

It’s recommended for adults, especially those at higher risk, such as tobacco and alcohol users, and those with a history of oral cancer.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Oral Cancer?

Symptoms include sores that don't heal, pain, lumps, white or red patches, and difficulty swallowing. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to get screened.
