Preventive Oral Cancer Screenings for a Long Life of Healthy, Cancer-free Smiles!

Oral Cancer Screening Service in Boston Area

Everyone is at risk of oral cancer — male, female, young, or old. Sadly, about 53,000 Americans will be diagnosed with mouth cancer this year alone, and only 57% will be alive in the next five years! There is some good news, though. The survival rate for oral cancer has improved in the last decade, owing this success to early mouth cancer detection. Anjum A. Ansari D.M.D. in Boston, Massachusetts, encourages patients to consider annual oral cancer screening for early detection.

How we do oral cancer screening

You may not have thought about it, but your dentist may be the first person to diagnose oral cancer. During routine dental checkups, screening your mouth for oral cancer is one of the things we do.

You might have seen our dentist physically examine your mouth when visiting our dental office. While we identify signs of cavities and gum disease through screening your mouth, the other objective is to identify early signs of oral cancer. During the examination, we want to see if there is anything out of the ordinary by looking out for:

  • Rough patches
  • Lesions
  • Lumps
  • Sores

If we spot any of the above symptoms, we carry out an additional diagnosis to confirm or rule out oral cancer.

Importance of oral cancer screening

No matter how happy you are in life, there is usually that little voice that always reminds you of the dangers of life. Eventually, your worries may be shaped in the form of various types of cancer, especially after seeing people around you become ravaged by this disease. Unfortunately, cancer patients realize they have the disease when it’s too late, complicating treatment. The good news is that Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. can help detect oral cancer early when it’s easily treatable.

One of the reasons many oral cancer patients succumb is because the symptoms are discovered when it has already spread to other parts. However, a dentist can identify early signs of mouth cancer during oral screenings and refer you to a specialist for advanced treatment.
