Oral Cancer Screenings in Philadelphia, PA

The National Cancer Institute estimates more than 40,000 new cases of oral cancer within the year. The sooner cancer is found, the better the odds of overcoming the disease become. Your Philadelphia dentist will perform the screening during your routine check- up. The screening exam will look for lesions, such as abnormal white or red clusters of cells. The goal of the screening is to detect cancer before symptoms appear or in the earliest stages so that it can be treated quickly and efficiently.
