Oral Cancer Awareness

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month!

Oral cancer is a common cancer affecting the head and neck. With frighteningly high fatality rates, early detection is the key to timely diagnosis and treatment. Routine screenings give you the best chance of finding oral cancer in its early stages.

🦷 Oral cancer can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or lifestyle. Factors like tobacco and alcohol use, as well as the human papillomavirus (HPV), can increase the risk.

🦷 Regular dental check-ups are crucial. Dentists can spot early signs of oral cancer that you might not notice yourself, such as sores, lumps, or changes in the mouth’s lining.

It’s essential to act quickly if you notice anything unusual.
