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 with your dentist in Arlington.
Tumors can commonly appear on the roof or floor of the mouth as well as the throat, tongue, lips, gums and face.
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.
During your oral health assessment, your dentist in Arlington VA – Dr. Rima Kanbaragha will advise you on mouth cancer risk factors. If you are not located in Arlington, but in areas such as Crystal City or D.C. we are happy to schedule you an appointment.
Actions such as stopping smoking, limiting alcohol consumption and eating a balanced diet can reduce the potential risk.
