Oral Cancer Comes in Many Forms

Oral cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer when not detected or treated early. It’s important that you visit your dentist for an annual oral cancer screening in order to properly identify and treat any cancerous lesions within your mouth.

Tongue Cancer? While rare, tongue cancer is one of the more common forms of oral cancer. Tongue cancer will usually start as a small sore on the tongue and grow into a larger mass.

Palate Cancer ?The upper palate in your mouth is also susceptible to cancer. Look for sores that never seem to heal on your upper palate and report any changes to your dentist immediately.
