Oral Cancer is a Killer: Early Detection Saves Lives

by Shearly (SU)
According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, approximately 50,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year alone. Of those, just over half are expected to still be alive in five years. As with all forms of cancer, the earlier it is diagnosed or the earlier potential symptoms are found, the higher the chances for survival. Survival rates for oral cancer have risen in the last decade. Oral cancer is part of a class of cancer commonly known as head and neck cancers, and make up about 85% of all cancers within that group. The rate of death for this kind of cancer is in large part attributed to the fact that it is often discovered quite late in its development. Dentists, using routine dental screenings are on the front lines of those who can spot oral cancer at an early stage, before it has a chance to metastasize to deeper structures of the head and throat, such as the lymph glands.
