Catch cancer at early stage with regular dental visit

Posted .

Oral cancer is becoming more prevalent and usually, there is no pain or symptoms at the early stages. If you are a smoker your chance of getting oral cancer is very high. The response rate of many lesions is good and much progress has been made in this area, the cure rate is not high. Higher grade lymphomas are associated with a 60% mortality rate at 5 years after diagnosis and treatment. So it is very important to catch these types of cancer at their earliest stage. Your dental hygienist or dentist can detect these signs at their earliest stage. So it is very important to have a regular dental visit every 6 months especially if you are a smoker.”
