Oral Cancer Screening Can Save Your Life

Jul 16, 2022
Sunflower

Our skilled Milford dentist wishes to remind patients that as part of our complete dental health services, our office provides rigorous oral cancer screening. Early detection, as with all cancer types, can significantly affect how well your therapy works. Your best line of defense against oral cancer is routine screening, and our Milford doctor is ready to help.

Our Milford doctor will examine your lips, tongue, gums, mouth, and throat during your screening to look for any abnormalities that could be or develop into cancer. We will take any symptoms you may be having into great consideration. If any oral cancer symptoms have persisted for longer than a week without improving, make an appointment right away and inform your dentist.

Symptoms that could indicate oral cancer include:

  • The sensation of something caught in the back of your throat
  • Ear pain
  • Lumps or swellings in or around your mouth
  • Unexplained mouth bleeding
  • Mouth sores that don’t heal
  • White or red patches in your mouth
  • Weight loss
  • Pain or difficulty in swallowing, speaking, or moving your jaw or tongue
  • Sore throat

Oral cancer claims one adult American life per hour. Oral cancer can affect anyone, but certain things can make it more likely. Genetic predisposition, prolonged sun exposure, a poor diet, and binge drinking are among the most prevalent risk factors. Men are more likely than women to develop oral cancer. Patients who have GERD are more likely to experience complications. Users of tobacco in any form are six times more likely to develop oral cancer than non-users.

Regardless of the etiology, the size, kind, and stage of the cancer will determine how well a treatment works. Your ability to recover successfully may depend on early detection. Oral malignancies have an 80–90% survival rate when detected early. The main justification for this is that earlier therapy may begin thanks to early detection. Early-stage or precancerous oral malignancies can frequently be surgically removed and treated with less invasive techniques. Later cancer stages frequently have gone well beyond your mouth and are more likely to be larger and more complex.

We are taking on new clients. Contact our Milford office for a consultation if you'd like more information on mouth cancer and oral cancer screening.
