There are over 43,000 new cases of oral cancer each year in the U. S. alone. A large number of these cases will have negative outcomes because oral cancer is usually found in the advanced stages; since many patients never get the periodic oral cancer screenings they need. As a routine part of every dental examination, oral cancer screenings from Dr. Schramm can literally save your life. During your oral cancer screening Dr. Schramm will check for abnormalities in and around your mouth, face, and neck. For patients with oral cancer found in the early stages of development, there’s a much better chance of remission. Men are twice as likely as women to develop oral cancer but the risk for development increases for everyone with age. To reduce your risk of developing oral cancer; avoid tobacco products, alcohol, excessive sun exposure, and contracting the Human Papillomavirus.
