Oral Cancer Screenings in Palm City, FL
Oral cancer can affect lips, cheek lining, gums, tongue, floor and roof of the mouth, and back toward the throat. About 30,000 new cases of oral cancer are found each year. Your dentist is the first line of detection and diagnosis of this disease. If found at an early stage, oral cancer is usually treatable and curable.
Always report to Bessey Creek Dental Care if you discover any of these possible signs or symptoms:
- Sores that bleed easily or do not heal
- Lumps or spots that are thick or hard
- Persistently rough or crusted areas
- Numbness, pain or tenderness that may be new or persisting
During your regular dental exam, your hygienist and dentist will perform an oral cancer screening to look for any suspicious lesions or bumps.
