Free Mouth Cancer Screenings Offered For Oral Cancer Awareness Month
The Oral Cancer Foundation has designated the entire month of April as Oral Cancer Awareness Month and encourages people to get screened. Oral cancer is the largest cancer group that falls into the head and neck cancer category. Nearly 48,250 people in the US alone will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Oral cancer can be found in the back of the mouth and on the lips.
Oral cancer, also known as mouth cancer will be diagnosed in about 132 people each day in the US alone, and one person dies from oral cancer every hour of every day. Factors that increase the risk of oral cancer are smoking and tobacco use, heavy alcohol intake, a history of significant sun exposure and exposure to the HPV-16 virus (human papilloma virus version 16).
During the month of April, Sedation and Implant Dentistry Las Vegas is providing free screenings to current and new patients. The goal of oral cancer screening is to detect mouth cancer and precancerous lesions that may lead to mouth cancer at an early stage when cancerous lesions are easiest to remove and most likely to be cured.
