Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening refers to the examination performed by a dentist or doctor using simple tests to check for the signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. Oral cancer kills thousands of people every year and for saving valuable life early diagnosis plays a very crucial role. This is where oral screening can make a difference by identifying mouth cancer at an early stage.
An early diagnosis can literally save lives. Recognizing possible warning signs of cancer and taking prompt action leads to early diagnosis. This increases the chances of successful treatment. Early diagnosis prevents further spread of cancer to other organs and it leads to high survival rate.
Oral Cancer is the abnormal, uncontrolled and aggressive cell growth seen at lip, inside lining of lip and cheeks, tongue, bottom of mouth, and the bony roof of the mouth, or hard palate. At Teeth Care Centre®, we have a team of highly qualified dental professionals who examine your mouth to check for presence of possible signs of cancer like white or red patches, mouth sores, etc. In case of any doubt, we have early detection kits to check it and in case of further need, an onco pathologist will take biopsy sample from the suspected oral site for more investigation. Biopsy investigation is the best method to determine the presence or absence of cancer.
Through regular checkups and periodic oral cancer screening, one can possibly curb this fatal disease before it spreads.
