  • Oral Cancer Detection

    Oral cancer screening is an examination performed by a dentist or doctor to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth.

    The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure.

    The goal of oral cancer screening is to detect mouth cancer or precancerous lesions that may lead to mouth cancer at an early stage — when cancer or lesions are easiest to remove and most likely to be cured.

    Factors that can increase the Risk of Oral Cancer include:

    • Tobacco use of any kind, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and snuff, among others
    • Heavy alcohol use
    • Previous oral cancer diagnosis
    • History of significant sun exposure, which increases the risk of lip cancer
