Early detection of any disease is crucial, more so in the treatment of mouth cancers. This is why we regularly perform mouth cancer screenings as a part of routine examination. We put a lot of emphasis on the prevention and early detection of mouth cancers, hence we aim to educate our patients to help them to prevent and identify any signs or symptoms related to this.
We advise the patients to report any symptoms:
Such as pain or difficulty when eating, chewing or speaking, or a numb feeling in the lips or mouth. Unexplained soreness in the mouth that won’t heal; red or white patches in the mouth; or swelling in the mouth or lips.
We advise them of the risk factors involved:
Smoking, drinking, lifestyle, dietary habits and so on.
What happens during a mouth cancer screening?
We inspect your mouth for red and white patches , lumps, swelling and other abnormalities.
Depending on the results of your exam, we may either recommend a follow-up appointment or a referral for a biopsy to check whether cancerous cells are present.
