Oral Cancer Screenings in Arlington VA

Mouth cancer screening reduces the potential impact of oral cancer by early detection.

What is mouth cancer screening?

Mouth Cancer screening is a routine inspection of your face, lips, throat, neck and the inside of your mouth. We always check for abnormalities whenever you come in for a routine appointment or treatment.

Tumors can commonly appear on the roof or floor of the mouth as well as the throat, tongue, lips, gums and face.

Signs that you should not ignore include:

  • Persistent growths or lumps.
  • A bleeding ulcer that doesn’t heal.
  • Red or white patches on the lining of the mouth.
  • Persistent pain when swallowing.

These symptoms are not necessarily a sign of mouth cancer, however, we recommend getting a medical consultation as soon as possible.

Early detection rates can boost successful recovery from mouth cancer, which affects the lives of thousands of people every day.

Can the risks of oral cancer be reduced?

During your oral health assessment, the top dentist in Arlington VA – Dr. Rima Kanbaragha will advise you on mouth cancer risk factors.

Actions such as stopping smoking, limiting alcohol consumption and eating a balanced diet can reduce the potential risk.
