Hamilton Oral Cancer
Always take precaution – get checked today!
Oral Cancer often manifests as a small lump or lesion (either pale or dark in colour) in or around the mouth, but is treatable if found in its early stages.
Symptoms can also include white or red patches around the mouth, pain, and paresthesia (if left untreated), mouth sores and problems swallowing.
Visual and Velscope Cancer Test
A visual screening, conducted at every oral hygiene appointment, will give us an indication of any possible issue. If a problem is suspected, a more in-depth screening, such as our Velscope Cancer Test, may be scheduled or a biopsy conducted.
A biopsy is an examination of tissue removed from a lesion or other area, which is used to discover the presence, cause, or extent of the cancer.
