Early oral cancer detection can happen at your dental check up!
You know your dentist is looking for cavities, but you may not realize your dentist can check for cancer at your visit too. Regular visits to your dentist can help you detect such cancers early. The American Cancer Society estimates that people with a new diagnosis of cancers of the mouth and pharynx will exceed 54,000 this year.
Plan to schedule a dental check-up and remember to ask about an oral cancer screening.
