It is important to receive regular oral cancer screenings to ensure optimal oral health and safety. We encourage you to visit our Madison Heights dental office and allow our doctors perform a thorough inspection of your mouth. Oral cancer is known to sneak up on its victims and can remain undetected for many years. Early detection allows more successful treatments to be performed.
During an oral cancer screening, our doctors examine your mouth, lips, and tongue to look for any irregularities.
Symptoms of oral cancer include:
- Bleeding gums
- Lumps or swelling in your mouth
- Issues or discomfort while swallowing, or speaking
- Mouth sores that last a while
- Ear pain
- White or red patches
- Excessive weight loss
