Are you aware that oral cancer is the sixth most lethal form of cancer globally, with approximately 54,000 new cases identified each year? It is a rising issue among individuals aged 40 and above, particularly among those who smoke, use smokeless tobacco, and consume alcohol regularly. Oral cancer has an 83% cure rate if identified and treated early.
It is crucial to detect any abnormalities that occur in the tissues of your lips, mouth, and throat early on to prevent potentially serious health issues from developing, including oral cancer and other oral diseases.
Dr. Dominguez will inquire about any changes in your medical history and unusual symptoms. She will examine your oral cavity, which includes your lips, cheek lining, gums, tongue, floor and roof of your mouth, as well as your throat, tonsils, and the back of your tongue. Additionally, she will check for any lumps or abnormalities by palpating your jaw and neck. Using Cutting-Edge Technology in imaging helps detect any abnormalities.
