Many people are surprised to learn that oral cancer claims the lives of more Americans than cervical, brain, liver, testicular, kidney, or ovarian cancer. Oral cancer remains one of the deadliest diseases, because it’s often not discovered until it reaches an advanced stage. If caught early enough, oral cancer has an 80 to 90% survival rate.
Dr. Como performs thorough oral cancer screenings during regular dental exams. He carefully inspects the mouth, cheeks, tongue, and palate for abnormalities. Though tobacco users represent the riskiest demographic, everyone over the age of 18 should have an oral cancer screening. Twenty-five percent of patients with oral cancer have no risk factors at all.
