Our oral cancer screening in Miami helps you detect early signs of oral cancer and precancerous lesions
Since oral cancer can be a life-threatening condition, early detection is important. To ensure you’re not at risk for cancer, you must visit a dentist frequently.
With our oral cancer screening in Miami, we’ll detect early signs of oral cancer, which will help us treat it successfully before it snowballs into a bigger issue.
You may expect a physical and visual check-up of your oral cavity and connected tissues during oral cancer screenings. At Jorge L. Dominguez D.M.D & Associates, we’ll inspect your tongue, gums, the back of your throat, the roof of your mouth, and the insides of your cheeks. If you have dentures or other removable appliances, you’ll need to take them out for the screening.
We’ll carefully look for abnormalities like discoloration or growth. If we come across anything concerning, we may recommend a biopsy, which will help us get a better look at the cells.
Noticing any abnormalities or irregularities in your mouth? Give us a call now or request a dental appointment with us; we’ll be glad to help you out!
Since early signs of oral cancer can be difficult to spot, they can sometimes be overlooked. This type of cancer can be developed in various places, including the soft palate, hard palate, tongue, gums, salivary glands, and cheeks. Based on where mouth cancer initially develops, it can have a number of warning signs.
Adults over 40 should have annual screenings, while those over 20 should have screening once every three years. People with risk factors — like those who have a family history of cancer, have HPV (human papillomavirus), and/or are heavy alcohol drinkers should request an annual oral cancer screening.
