What Are Oral Cancer Screenings?

Oral cancer encompasses cancers of the throat, sinuses, tongue, cheeks, lips, and other structures of the mouth. Early detection is the best way to improve the outcome of an oral cancer diagnosis. During your examination, Dr. Graham checks for signs of oral cancer. You can also check at home for the following symptoms:

  • Sores on mouth, neck, or face that last for more than two weeks
  • Bleeding in your mouth
  • Swelling
  • Areas that feel rough or that are crusted
  • Patches in your mouth that are white or red and have a velvet-like texture
  • Sensation that something is stuck in your throat
  • Ear pain
  • Persistent sore throat

Other signs may indicate that you have oral cancer. If you are experiencing these or other symptoms, contact our office to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Graham.
