Oral cancer

Oral cancer is more common than leukemia, skin melanoma, Hodgkin’s diease, cancers of the brain, liver, bone, thyroid gland, stomach, ovaries, and cervix – and is typically caused by long term use of tobacoo products and alcohol.  One of the most part of a regular oral health examine at the dentist office is also a thorough oral cancer screening examination at the doctor’s office.  Its always better to take preventative care than to have to under go cancer treatments.  So eat healthy and get regular examinations.
