How are Oral Cancer Screenings Performed?

The procedure of oral cancer screening is so simple, short and comforting that you might not even know that screening has taken place. That’s a lot more than what one can ask for. Your dentist will examine you by looking at your teeth for any symptoms of oral cancer including:

  • Sores in the soft tissue
  • Changes in the texture of soft tissue
  • Lumps or bumps in the soft tissue
  • Changes in the color of soft tissue
  • Chronic hoarse voice
  • Swelling in the lymph nodes
  • Inflammation in the lymph nodes
  • Any other problem like swallowing difficulty

Your dentist might ask you about soreness in your voice, hoarseness, and changes in the voice. They might also ask if you have any bad tastes in your mouth. These are the things that he can’t find out usually. This makes them sure about the fact that you don’t have oral cancer.
