Oral Cancer Screening
It's a fact. In the U.S., oral cancer kills 1 patient, every hour of every day.
Beating the odds against oral cancer requires regular dental and medical examinations, avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol use, and testing for Human papillomavirus (HPV).
Oral cancer is in the group of head and neck cancers; unlike other forms of cancer that are decreasing, the occurrence of oral cancer is on the rise. While it is not difficult to diagnosis, the fatality rate is high because it is usually not diagnosed until it is very advanced.
