ORAL CANCER

Oral Cancer is one of the most common yet most preventable cancers. Out of 70,000 people diagnosed this year with head and neck cancer, 30% will include cancer of the oral cavity. While most people are aware of the link between smoking and lung cancer, few realize that the use of tobacco products is the primary cause of oral cancer. Among people who neither smoke nor drink, this type of cancer is nearly non-existent.

The 5-year survival rate for oral cancer discovered in a late stage is 36%. However, when detected early, the survival rate increases to 82%. The American Cancer Society and the American Dental Association recommend yearly professional oral exams. A careful oral exam is the first step in prevention.
