Oral Cancer Prevention

Keywords: Oral Cancer Prevention

We routinely perform head and neck and oral soft tissue examinations as part of our initial, new patient examination and on a regular basis on all recare and maintenance visits. For patients who have predisposing risk factors and those with a family history of oral cancer, a more intensive detection system called Vizalite is used. What are the risk factors? Tobacco and Alcohol use are the 2 biggies. Note that I said tobacco and not just smoking. Chewing tobacco is even worse than smoking it. Yet, look at our Baseball players. Shame on them for setting such a bad example for our children. Alcohol risk is defined as more than 3-4 beers a day or more than 2 drinks a day. People at risk should be looked at yearly and evaluated for Oral Cancer. More people die each year of oral cancer than women do from cervical cancer. Yet, most women get PAP smears regularly. Oral Cancer screeiniong should be just as important.
