Screening for Oral Cancer in Oxford and Lake Orion, MI
Like many other structures in your body, your mouth is susceptible to pathology or disease. The most serious oral pathology is oral cancer. While there are many forms of oral cancer, most cases can be detected early. Early identification of cancer leads directly to better treatment outcomes and a higher probability of survival.
So, how can you detect oral cancer? The best way is a visit to your oral surgeons at Seven Oaks Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Our doctors will thoroughly inspect your mouth for signs of cancer and other disease. If they find anything suspicious, they can take a biopsy for laboratory analysis. Of course, if you notice any changes in the tissues of your mouth, whether painful or not, you should let us know immediately.
While tobacco users and heavy drinkers are most prone to oral cancer, everyone is at some degree of risk. Do not overlook this possible health threat. Call us today at (248) 969-9500 (Oxford) and (248) 393-1888 (Lake Orion) to schedule your oral cancer screening.
