April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month-A Good Time To Visit Your Dentist For A Screening

We would like to remind everyone that regular oral cancer examinations from your dental professional are the best methods to detect oral cancer in its early stages. Regular dental visits can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

Oral cancer can strike in the mouth and throat with most of these cancers beginning in the flat cells—squamous cells—that cover the surfaces of the mouth, tongue and lips. Some of the risk factors for oral cancer include tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption, infection with human papillomavirus, sun exposure, diet, betel nut use, and personal history of oral cancer.

In between dental visits, it is important for you to be aware of the following signs and symptoms, and to see your dentist if they do not disappear after two weeks.
•a sore or irritation on the mouth or lips that doesn’t go away
•red or white patches
•bleeding in the mouth
•pain, tenderness or numbness in mouth or lips
•a lump, thickening, rough spot, crust or small eroded area
•pain or difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving your jaw or tongue
•a change in the way your teeth fit together when you close your mouth
•lump in the neck 
•persistent earache

Your mouth is one of your body's most important early warning systems. Don't ignore any suspicious lumps or sores that last more than two weeks. Should you discover something suspicious, make an appointment for a prompt examination. Early treatment may well be the key to complete recovery.
