Oral Cancer Screening
Oral Cancer Symptoms
Oral cancer accounts for roughly 2.9% of all cancer cases in America. Luckily cases that are found early can often be treated and cured.
Some of the common oral cancer symptoms may include:
- Red/Whites Sores
- Chronic Sore Throat
- Thickening of Skin
- Rough Spots
- Painful Mouth/Lips
- Numb Mouth/Lips
- Difficulty Chewing/Swallowing/Speaking
Many patients, however, do not notice these symptoms until the disease has progressed, which is why oral cancer screenings are so important. Screenings can help find cancer at an early stage when it is more easily treated.
