Arizona Oncology Reminds Men and Women to Get Screened for Oral, Head and Neck Cancer; Arizona is Among the Top States for Oral Cancer Prevention and Treatment

April is Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month and Arizona Oncology , a practice in The US Oncology Network , would like to remind both men and women to speak with their healthcare providers about getting screened for the disease.

Oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers are more than twice as common in men as in women and occur most often in the tongue, tonsils and oropharynx, gums, floor of the mouth, and other parts of the mouth. It is estimated that approximately 39,500 people will get oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer in the United States this year, and an estimated 7,500 will lose their lives to the disease (American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures, 2015).

Many pre-cancers and cancers of the oral cavity and oropharynx can be found early during routine screening exams by a dentist, doctor, dental hygienist or by self-exam. However, many of these cancers are found because of signs or symptoms.
