Oral Cancer ScreeningSPOKANE, WASHINGTON Oral Cancer is said to be one the deadliest because it often goes undetected until it is in the latter stages. That is another reason why regular dental examinations are so critical. If caught and treated early, oral cancer has a very low morbidity rate. With roughly 30,000 new cases being diagnosed each year, your dentist is your first line of detection and defense against this disease. Oral cancer can affect the lips, cheek lining, gums, tongue, floor and roof of the mouth, and also move back toward the throat. Always report to MyDentist if you discover any of these possible signs: Sores that bleed easily or do not heal Lumps or spots that are thick or hard Persistently rough or crusted areas Numbness, pain or tenderness that may be new or persisting During your regular dental exam, MyDentist will ask if you notice problems chewing, swallowing, speaking or moving any part of your mouth or tongue. MyDentist routinely screens for oral cancer as part of every comprehensive dental exam or cleaning.
