Oral cancer affects the mouth, lips, and throat. In most cases, cancer forms as a painless mass that may cause no noticeable symptoms until the disease has become very advanced.
In this video, you will learn more about oral cancer and the screening process. Your dentist will examine high-risk areas in your mouth for signs of cancer. These areas include underneath the tongue, the floor of the mouth, and the back of the mouth where it joins the throat. Oral cancer screenings are fast and painless, and can be performed as part of your biannual dental checkup.
