Oral Cancer Screening Dentists Michigan

Over 50,000 Americans will get oral or throat cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society. Fortunately, our Cascade and Grand Haven dentists provide oral cancer screenings so cancer is detected in its early stages. Detecting oral cancer in its early stages gives you the best chance of survival.

Oral Cancer Symptoms

Oral cancer symptoms include:

  • Red or white patches in mouth
  • Sores in mouth
  • Loose teeth
  • Change in how dentures fit
  • Difficulty or painful eating
  • Sore throat

If you recognize any signs of mouth cancer, schedule an appointment with our office as soon as possible. During your visit, our dentist will examine the inside of your mouth and feel for lumps, thickened skin, or other abnormalities.

Certain lifestyle choices will increase your risk for oral cancer, such as smoking, alcohol abuse, and prolonged sun exposure on the lips. It’s important you share an accurate medical history with our dentists so they can identify risk factors for oral cancer.
