Oral cancer is one cancer that sneaks up on its victims. It is the sixth most common cancer in the world and among the most devastating since it affects the face, which is the focal point of human interaction. It isn’t as easily detected as some other cancers. Why? Normally cancerous cells develop under the mucosal layer of skin inside the mouth. Unless one has a trained eye and sophisticated laser equipment to diagnose it, it is often missed until the cancer has progressed to an even more serious level. Since the incidence of this type of cancer has risen to more than 40,000 cases of oral cancer per year and more than 8,000 of these cases result in deaths of patients each year, we think it’s very important for all of our patients who visit our office be given the opportunity to be screened. The process is fast, easy and painless! Our price is $47 per screening, a small price to pay for peace of mind. To learn more about the oral screening process at our Plano, Texas location click here!
