Our mouth can be the first to warn a patient of significant health problems. The tissue in the mouth is usually pink and smooth. Any change in appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process or cancerous growth. During an oral cancer screening we will check for color, consistency, contour and function. This oral cancer screening should be done one time per year. When there are suspicious areas a biopsy is taken. The biopsy can be done with laser surgery, or traditional surgical procedure.
