As part of your regular dental assessments your dentist will perform an Oral Cancer Screening. This is an examination performed by a dentist to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when the prognosis for treatment may be better.
Cancer can occur in any part of the mouth including the tongue, lips, throat, salivary glands, pharynx, larynx, sinus, and other sites located in the head and neck area.
