At MAK Dental in Edmonton, we understand the importance of early detection and prevention of oral cancer. Early detection is critical in providing effective treatment for oral cancer. Our practice offers comprehensive oral cancer screenings to help patients remain healthy and detect any signs of abnormal changes or growths in the mouth.
What are the benefits of oral cancer checks?
Detecting oral cancer early can help reduce the severity of treatment, such as surgery or chemotherapy, and increase the chances of a successful recovery. When caught in time, oral cancer can be treated without significant health risks associated with more advanced stages of the disease.
What are the symptoms of oral cancer?
Oral cancer can present in any soft tissues in the mouth, throat, head, neck, and salivary glands. Symptoms may include bumps or lumps inside the mouth or gums, white or red patches on the tongue and inside the cheek, sores that won’t heal, bleeding or numbness in the mouth or neck, persistent cough, and changes in the voice. If you exhibit one or more of these symptoms, we urge you to contact MAK Dental for a comprehensive oral cancer screening.
Who can benefit from oral cancer screenings?
Everyone should receive an oral cancer screening at least once yearly as part of their regular dental checkup. People who smoke and drink alcohol should receive more frequent screenings, as they are at higher risk for oral cancer. Additionally, those with a family history of oral cancer or other related cancers should also be monitored by our dentist for early signs of the disease.
