Diagnosing oral cancer can be complicated. A clinical assessment takes into consideration your specific risk factors (age, history of smoking or alcohol use, HPV, poor diet) and uses special light technology designed to detect changes in the mouth that can’t be seen with the naked eye. If your dentist or doctor suspects you have oral cancer, they may refer you to an oral medicine specialist for a second opinion or biopsy for a definitive diagnosis.
An oral cancer screening is included in your comprehensive oral examination with the dentist.
An annual oral cancer screening is recommended for everyone over the age of 40 years and every three years for those aged between 20 and 39 years old.
