Like many kinds of cancer, oral cancer can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. During the patient’s yearly exams, Doctors Florio and Kohner perform oral cancer screenings to make sure the patient is cancer free.
Our team is trained in a simple, effective method that involves an examination of your oral cavity to detect cancerous and precancerous conditions. If we find an area of concern, we may perform a simple brush test. This test collects cells from the area, which is then sent to an outside laboratory for analysis.
During your next dental appointment, ask your dentist to perform an oral exam. Early detection of oral cancer can improve the chance of successful treatment.
