Cancer is always a serious matter, and great strides have been made in recent years toward better results and longer more healthier lives thanks to yearly screenings, self-checks at home, and timely treatment. Here at Hunterdon Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical Specialists, we are dedicated to helping you to maintain oral wellness and to avoid the consequences of cancer that affects your mouth and the parts of it.
There is nothing difficult about checking your mouth once per month. Do you notice any lesions or lumps? Those along with any sore that fails to heal or bleeds easily, red or white patches in your mouth, problems with chewing or swallowing, or chronic sore throat or hoarseness are all signs of potential oral disease. Check the inside of your mouth thoroughly, including the inner cheeks and under your tongue. If you notice any of the above, do not hesitate. Our Clinton oral cancer screenings should be done on a yearly basis, but if there is reason to do so between visits, by all means take immediate action. Sometimes, people skip or postpone screenings because they don’t want to go through the fuss, preparation, or invasive nature of them. The good news about our Clinton oral cancer screenings is that they are simple, easy, and requires nothing other than you coming in. You don’t have to fast and you can go right back to work afterward. Should any signs of oral cancer be detected, our oral surgeon will discuss with you the best way to proceed, which is likely to be a biopsy.
Why not reach out to our office right now and book a time to come in soon? Our Clinton oral cancer screenings are essential to assuring optimal well-being. There is no doubt that early detection is closely linked to good outcomes.
