Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer

At your regular check-ups, Dr. Sabet will look and feel for lumps, masses, growths, red or white patches or recurring sores in the head and neck region. This examination will screen for oral cancer as well as other oral problems. Oral cancers that are found early have a better chance for successful treatment.

Warning Signs of Oral Cancer

  • A persistent sore or irritation that will not heal
  • Color changes in the oral tissues
  • Unexplained pain, tenderness or numbness anywhere in the mouth or lips
  • A lump, thickening, rough spot, crust or small eroded area
  • Difficulty in chewing, swallowing, speaking or moving the jaw or tongue

Mouth Sores

Although there are numerous types of mouth sores, the most common are canker sores, cold sores and candidiasis.
