Screening for cancer of the mouth, gums and throat

Around the world, a person dies from oral cancer. After 5 years, there is a 50% chance of survival. This mortality rate is mainly due to late detection of the disease. To avoid treatment at an advanced stage, it is important to diagnose the disease as soon as possible and to carry out the necessary treatments.

How to recognize oral cancer?

The symptoms of oral cancer are multiple:

  •     sores or ulcers that persist
  •     Red or white stains
  •     Difficulty moving forward or chewing
  •     Feeling like something is stuck in the throat
  •     Pain or bleeding
  •     Sore throat that lasts
  •     Pain
  •     Change of voice

At first the symptoms of oral cancer are almost painless, as the disease progresses you may see burns. If you notice any symptom, it is important to see your dentist promptly for a full diagnostic.

Subjects at risk

Some people are particularly susceptible to oral cancer. The following groups of people are statistically risk factors:

  • From 55 years old
  • People with HPV (human papillomavirus)
  • Family history of cancer
  • Tobacco consumption
  • Alcohol
  • Prolonged exposure to the sun

Oral cancer treatment

If the disease is diagnosed early, the success rate is around 90%. Treatment of the disease may involve:

  1. Surgery to remove cancerous tissue
  2. Radiotherapy
  3. Chemotherapy

Depending on the stage of development, the patient may require 1 or all 3 treatments.
