Oral Cancer Can’t Be OverlookedIn the United States, more than 35,000 new cases of oral and throat cancers are diagnosed each year, and oral cancer kills one person every hour in the U.S. alone. You may have oral cancer and not even know it, so it is essential to get screened at your next dentist visit. Early detection plays a significant role in a patient’s chances of survival in almost all cases of oral cancer. By diagnosing and treating oral cancer early, a patient’s five-year survival rate is 80-90% greater. Oral Cancer Risk Factors Include:
- Regular use of tobacco products (cigarettes, chewing tobacco, cigars or pipes)
- Excessive consumption of alcohol
- Genetics (a family history of oral cancer or any cancer)
- Excessive exposure to the sun at a young age
How We Screen For Oral CancerThe VELscope oral cancer screening system consists of a specialized white light source and viewing scope that make it easier for our dentists to examine the tissues inside your mouth. Healthy tissues will almost glow a bright green color. Abnormal tissue shows up much darker under the specialized light. Call me at (360) 844-2141 to schedule your VELScope® Oral cancer screening.
