Oral cancer screening is a crucial aspect of preventive dental care. During the procedure, your oral cavity will be examined to detect any signs or symptoms of oral cancer or precancerous conditions. Oral cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the mouth, affecting the lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, and throat. Early detection of oral cancer significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and improves overall prognosis.
During an oral cancer screening, a dental professional thoroughly examines the oral cavity, looking for any abnormalities or suspicious lesions. The screening process may include the following:
Visual Examination: The dentist or oral healthcare provider visually inspects the entire oral cavity, looking for any visible signs of oral cancer.
Physical Examination: The dentist may gently palpate the tissues in the oral cavity to check for any unusual lumps or masses.
Use of Specialized Tools: This may include the use of a tongue depressor to better visualize the back of the throat or a light source to illuminate the oral tissues for a more detailed examination.
Patient History and Risk Assessment: The dentist will inquire about your medical history, lifestyle habits (such as tobacco and alcohol use), and any symptoms you may have experienced. This information helps in assessing the patient’s risk factors for oral cancer and guides the screening process.
In case any lesions or abnormalities are detected during the screening, we might recommend you for further diagnostic tests, such as a biopsy, to confirm the presence of cancerous cells.
Anyone who has a history of alcohol or tobacco use or who has a history of oral cancer is considered to be at high risk of contracting oral cancer. These individuals would benefit greatly from regular screenings for prevention, early detection, and timely treatment.
Here are some common signs and symptoms of oral cancer that you need to be aware of:
- Persistent sore or Ulcer
- Red or white patches on the lining of the mouth, gums, or tongue
- Unexplained bleeding
- Swelling or Lump
- Numbness or Pain
- Difficulty swallowing or Chewing
- Changes in speech such as slurred or unclear speech
- Ear Pain without any known cause
- Difficulty wearing dentures due to changes in the shape and structure of the mouth
Recognizing the symptoms of oral cancer is important for early detection and timely treatment. If left untreated, oral cancer is prone to be life-threatening.
Visit our offices today for your professional oral cancer screening if you are a high-risk individual or you notice one or more of these symptoms.
