Oral Cancer Screening, Carrollton, TX

Oral Cancer Screening is an examination of your mouth looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. It is important to remember that your doctor does not necessarily think you have cancer if he or she suggests a screening test. Screening tests are given when you have no cancer symptoms. If a screening test result is abnormal, you may need to have more tests done to find out if you have Oral Cancer. These are called diagnostic tests. If you feel like taking up an Oral Cancer Screening Test from a dentist in Carrollton, TX book an appointment with Dr. Vadivel at Implants and Gumcare. If you are a new patient to his dental office in Carrollton, TX you may avail a FREE Consultation and FREE 3D CAT Scan.

Prevent Oral Cancer – Stop Fighting by Detecting Early

by Kumar T. Vadivel, DDS, FDS RCS, MS

Sore spots, lumps or bumps in your mouth (commonly referred to as oral lesions) that appear within the mouth, can be cancerous. Oral lesions are not necessarily malignant, some are benign. You don’t know it sometimes, until a biopsy to confirm its nature. Many factors including, viral, bacterial or fungal infections may cause these oral lesions. These lesion cannot be ignored or dismissed lightly. Malignant, or cancerous, oral lesions are life threatening and early detection is the key to successful treatment. Each year, close to 40,000 Americans can be diagnosed with these dangerous oral or pharyngeal cancer. It will cause over 8,000 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. Of those 40,000 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive over 5 years. This is a number which has not significantly improved in decades. The death rate for oral cancer is higher than that of cancers of other regions of the body.
