Oral Cancer Foundation in declaring April as Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month!
Over the past several decades there is no significant decrease in the incidence of oral cancer mostly because roughly two-thirds of the time, oral cancer is discovered in late stages when the 5-year survival rate is about 30%. If we can discover oral cancer in early stages, however, the survival rate goes up to 80% - 90%. Of course, if we can discover the condition in pre-cancerous stages, that’s even better.
The single-most important thing you can do to reduce the impact of oral cancer is to have comprehensive oral cancer exams at least once a year at CyberDent.
During the month of April, you can get free oral cancer screening at CyberDent.
At a minimum, this exam consists of looking for lesions in the oral cavity with the naked eye and palpating the neck and face for suspicious lumps. This inspection can be augmented with an exam using an adjunctive device, such as ones using fluorescence visualization technology. Fortunately, both exams take only a few minutes combined and are non-invasive to patients.
