Oral Cancer: Early Diagnosis Makes A Big Difference

Cancer remains one of the scariest diagnoses anyone can get. Oral cancer is especially frightening, because it generally has a higher mortality rate than other cancers. Please keep reading this post from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, because we actually have some encouraging things to tell you.

The reason that the death rate for oral cancer tends to be higher than in other types is not because of the disease itself, or that it’s hard to diagnose. The reason is that it is often discovered late in its development. The oral cancer screenings we provide might just save your life, or the life of someone you love.

The symptoms for oral cancer don’t always produce any pain or other obvious symptoms. That’s why it tends to be discovered in later stages. The goal of screenings is to detect any precancerous lesions that could develop into cancer.

When oral cancer is found in its early stages, of course, the chances for successful treatment are at their highest. If you have any concerns about the state of your oral health, be sure to talk to us about it at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA. Patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga come to our office for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
