This year, approximately 48,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer and around 9,500 of those diagnosed will die from it.
Oral cancer is dangerous, can go unnoticed and even be painless. The good news is however, that your Dentist can, in many cases, see or feel the precursor tissue changes, or the actual cancer while it is still very small, or in its earliest stages.
Have you been screened? Your dentist should be checking for signs of oral cancer.
