Oral cancer screening is a simple tool that is used to detect early signs of cancerous or precancerous development in a person’s mouth. By examining the tissues of the tongue, roof palate, cheeks, gum, floor of the mouth, and throat early signs of oral cancer can be spotted and evaluated right away. As with all types of cancer, the earlier oral cancer is found the earlier effective treatment can begin. While oral cancer has been found in those without risk factors, the majority of cases are found in people who use tobacco in some form and/or drink alcohol heavily. People who drink alcohol and smoke are six times as likely to get oral cancer as people who do not drink. The combination of tobacco and alcohol use is extremely dangerous, and these risk factors should be eliminated to prevent death from oral cancer.
