Importance of oral cancer exams

When it comes to early symptoms of oral cancer such as lip pain or even sores, they are often mistaken for another health condition. Making sure that you schedule routine care from your dentist will allow them to properly monitor your oral health. In the event any risk factors are noticed, your dentist can refer you to a specialist for further diagnostic testing and potential treatment.

About oral cancer exams

During your oral cancer examination in our office, the dentist will provide both a visual and physical examination, checking for any lumps bumps or areas of unusual skin. Your teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, and lips will be thoroughly examined to ensure that no risk factors are noticed.
