Oral Cancer Screening

During an oral cancer screening our providers will examine the mouth, teeth, gums, and tongue for any abnormalities or signs of cancer. This includes looking for lumps or bumps, changes in the color or texture of the oral tissues, and any sores or areas of irritation. Our providers may also feel the neck and jaw for any unusual lumps or swelling.

It is important to note that an oral cancer screening is not a replacement for regular visits to a healthcare provider and is not a diagnostic test for cancer. If the dentist finds any abnormalities during the screening, they may recommend further testing or a referral to a specialist for further evaluation.
