Have you scheduled your six-month oral cancer screening yet? Oral cancer can affect any patient regardless of sex, race, or age, but you can greatly enhance your chance of full recovery with an early diagnosis. If you have not scheduled your oral cancer screening this year, we encourage you to schedule your visit and further protect your oral health.

Oral cancer screenings include numerous symptoms that can indicate its presence, and many of its signs are of a physical nature that can present themselves as abnormalities in your mouth, face, head, or neck area. Common signs of oral cancer may include unexplained patchy blotches, rashes, crusts, cuts, or bruises.

Additional signs you may not consider are certain sensations with your smile, such as a persistent sore throat, difficulty breathing, or feeling as though you have a lump in the back of your throat. You may also experience unexplained weight loss. If you notice anything irregular or abnormal in your smile, we urge you to visit Dr. Chet B. Hawkins soon for an oral cancer screening.
