Protect Your Health with an Oral Cancer Screening

April 30, 2024

Your health is important, and it's up to you to take care of it. Did you know that over 50,000 adults in the United States will get diagnosed with oral or oropharyngeal cancer this year? Unfortunately, about 10,000 of those people will lose their lives to this disease. But there's good news: prevention and early detection can help minimize the risks and improve treatment outcomes.

Skilled care for your oral health and overall well-being

At Rosenstein & Gartner Dentistry, PLLC, we prioritize your smile and overall well-being. Oral cancer symptoms can be easy to miss, as they might seem like harmless issues that will go away on their own. But it's essential to catch these problems early before they become serious. A healthy lifestyle and avoiding bad habits are important steps in reducing the risk of oral cancer, but regular dental checkups with a thorough oral cancer screening can make all the difference.

During your comprehensive dental checkup at our office, we'll perform a careful examination of the tissues in and around your mouth. We'll also check your jaw, neck, and under your chin for any unusual lumps or signs of pathology. By staying vigilant and looking out for potential issues, we can help ensure that you stay healthy and happy.

Be aware of the warning signs

It's essential to be on the lookout for any changes in your oral tissues or lingering symptoms. If you notice any of these issues, let us know right away:

  • Mouth ulcers or lesions that don't heal
  • Unusual lumps or thickened areas
  • Red or white patches
  • Persistent swelling of unknown origin
  • Painful swallowing, a painful tongue, ear or neck ache
  • Constantly feeling like something is stuck in your throat
  • Tenderness or numbness in mouth or lips
  • Loose teeth
  • Jaw pain or stiffness
