Oral Cancer Screenings & Your Dental Visit

 
Chapter: Is Oral Cancer Painless?

Oral cancer is typically painless in its early stages and often goes unnoticed by the patient until it spreads, leading to chronic pain and sometimes loss of function before it is diagnosed. In its later stages, oral cancer can lead to surgery and facial and oral disfigurement. Surgery can include removal of a portion of the tongue and jaw.

 

Dr. Magaziner recommends that people also conduct a self-examination to look for the signs of oral cancer.
