Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a devastating, even deadly, cancer that can go unnoticed until it has progressed to later stages. Twenty-five percent of all oral cancer victims are non-smokers, non-drinkers and have no other lifestyle risk factors.1 According to a study conducted by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, the human papillomavirus (HPV) 16, a common sexually transmitted virus, is associated with oral cancers located in the upper throat and back of the tongue.2 As with any cancer, early detection and diagnosis is key; it’s important for patients to see an oral healthcare professional regularly, particularly if they are in the high-risk groups — those who use tobacco, abuse alcohol or have been exposed to HPV.13 ViziLite® Plus with TBlue® – the leading oral cancer screening system – was developed to help oral healthcare professionals identify and mark abnormal oral lesions including precancerous or cancerous cells that may be difficult to see during a regular visual exam – giving you peace of mind. If you are 18 or older, ask Dr Azita Adelynia about including a ViziLite® Plus with TBlue® screening as part of your annual checkup.
