Oral Cancer Screening
The risks of oral cancer are not as widely publicized as other cancers, making it difficult for the average person to recognize the signs. At Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, FAGD, PC, we are committed to providing our patients with a heightened awareness of the telltale symptoms of oral cancer. Detecting these signs when treatment is still effective could save your life. You may have mouth cancer if you are experiencing symptoms like:
- Mouth or lip sore that doesn’t heal
- A white or reddish patch inside the mouth
- Teeth that have become loose
- Growths inside the mouth
- Pain in the mouth
- Ear pain
- Finding it difficult or painful to swallow
It is important that you do not ignore these symptoms. Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, FAGD, PC, can provide oral cancer screening during a routine examination or on-demand. Do not delay in making an appointment of you have concerns about abnormal oral health problems.
