Oral Cancer Screening

Each year, oral cancer kills more people in the U.S. than other more widely known forms of cancer, including skin cancer (malignant melanoma), lymphatic cancer (lymphoma), thyroid, and cervical cancer. In. the U.S. someone dies of oral cancer every hour of every day. The death rate has remained relatively constant for almost five decades. The good news is, if oral cancer is detected early (in stages one or two), the survival rate is 80% to 90%. Everyone over the age of 18 should be screened at least once a year.

We are committed to helping change these statistics, which is why every April (Oral Cancer Awareness Month) everyone is welcome
to make an appointment in our office for a Complimentary Oral Cancer Screening.



Your mouth is part of the oral cavity, which also includes your lips, cheek lining, gums, front part of your tongue, floor of the mouth, and the hard palate (roof of your mouth). The throat (pharynx) starts at the soft part of the roof of your mouth and continues back into your throat. It includes the back section of your tongue as well as the base where the tongue attaches to the floor of your mouth.

During your visit, we will talk to you about your health history and examine these areas for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer
can be treated more easily.

Symptoms of Mouth or Throat Cancer

•  Sores that bleed easily or do not heal
•  Thick or hard spot or lump
•  Roughened or crusted area
•  Numbness, pain or tenderness
•  Change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite down

At Arizona Institute for Periodontics & Dental Implants in Sun City West, we include a thorough oral cancer screening during your comprehensive exam.
