Oral Cancer Screening

What is involved in an oral cancer screening

An oral cancer screening is quick and painless, and typically performed by a dentist during your bi-annual appointment. Your doctor will check your mouth, tongue and cheeks for any unusual looking bumps and sores. If found, an additional biopsy may be required to determine if oral cancer is present or not.
