ORAL CANCER SCREENING

Oral cancer has become the sixth deadliest cancer in the world. In fact, oral cancer claims the life of one American every hour. That’s why, at Ricafort Dental, we take this issue very seriously and strive to provide the best detection and prevention methods possible.

ORAL CANCER RISK FACTORS

  • Age – 90% of people diagnosed are over the age of 40
  • Prevalent alcohol and tobacco use
  • Family history of cancer

Oral cancer isn’t limited to just older people or alcohol and tobacco users, more and more people under the age of 40 are being diagnosed as well, and 25% of all people diagnosed do not drink alcohol or use tobacco products. Unfortunately, most cases go untreated and the cancer isn’t discovered until late stages of development – the reason why oral cancer has such a high mortality rate. Early detection is crucial; 90% of oral cancers are curable if discovered early.

Oral Cancer is a serious health risk and should not be taken lightly. Early detection is key to prevention, so please don’t hesitate to schedule an exam, including full oral cancer screening, at your Murfreesboro dentist.
