Three Common Signs of Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is a serious — and very deadly — disease. The worst part about it is that most people never realize there’s something wrong until the cancer has reached an aggressive stage. At that point, treatment is typically radical, invasive, and recovery rates drop.

The key to treating oral cancer successfully is to routinely screen for and identify warning signs as early as possible. That way you can get treated earlier, before the cancer spreads.

Common signs of pathology and precancerous tissues include:

No. Pain is Not a Symptom of Oral Cancer

Don’t wait for something to hurt before you see a dentist for an oral cancer screening. It may never happen. At Encino Dental Studio, we make cancer screenings a part of every routine exam that we complete.

If you’re not sure when the last time was you got checked for oral cancer, call Encino Dental Studio today to reserve an exam.
