We perform oral cancer screenings at every check-up. These are careful examinations of both your mouth and the surrounding structures of your head and neck. The oral examination includes a search for changes that appear pathologic in dental tissues, cheeks, throat, and roof and floor of the mouth. We will also palpate facial muscles and bones, and check your neck and thyroid gland. If we detect suspicious lesions or lumps, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.
