Oral Cancer Screening & Biopsies
Oral Cancer or Mouth Cancer is a type of cancer that grows in the mouth including the tongue, gums, interior of the cheeks, sinuses, roof and floor of the mouth, and the lips. If left untreated, these sores in the mouth can potentially put your life at risk.
Constant dental visits and check-ups of the mouth are crucial in the initial discovery of precancerous and cancerous situations. Rolling Hills’ dental examinations normally include oral cancer screenings. In case we notice a suspicious bruise in your mouth, we will conduct a brush test - a simple test involving the accumulation of cells from a skeptical injury in the mouth. The accumulated cells are then forwarded to a lab for examination. In case precancerous cells have been determined, we will assist you in deciding the best procedure to treat your oral cancer.
