Oral Cancer Screening

If present, oral cancer or the human papillomavirus (HPV) can be treated with the most success and minimal invasiveness, when it is revealed early. If oral cancer is undiagnosed and develops into an advanced state, one could lose the tongue and jaw—hence, regular screenings and detection are critical!

These changes are vital to catch early (by examining the vascularity and pigmentation), since oral cancer is usually plainly visible only after it has progressed and spread throughout the mouth.
