10 steps to perform an oral cancer screening by Scott Froum, DDS

10 steps to perform an oral cancer screening

05/28/2015

Squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity and throat account for about 45,000 cases each year in the United States, resulting in approximately 8,000 deaths per year. Studies show that successful treatment is highly dependent upon diagnosis and treatment of this disease in its early stages. Although there have been advances in surgical, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment, five-year survival rates of patients with moderate to advanced cases of oral cancer are less than 60%. Patients who do survive typically have trouble chewing, speaking, eating, and smiling after treatment thus it is extremely important to diagnose OC before it becomes advanced, since treatment for early cancer is not as severe. Dr. Scott Froum offers steps to use as you screen patients in your office.
