We have an overall of more 30,000 new cases diagnosed each year. It has become the sixth deadliest cancer in the world. In fact, oral cancer claims the life of one American every hour. That’s why at Eledent hospitals, we take this issue very seriously and provide detection and prevention methods.
Oral Cancer Risk Factors:
Oral cancer isn’t limited to just older people or alcohol and tobacco users, more and more people under the age of 40 are being diagnosed as well, and 25% of which do consume alcohol or do either use tobacco products. Unfortunately, most of the cases are not treated on time and the cancer isn’t discovered until late stage – the reason why oral cancer has such a high mortality rate. Early detection is crucial; 90% of oral cancers are curable if discovered early.
Oral Cancer is a serious health risk and should not be taken lightly. Early detection is always the key to prevention, so please don’t neglect your health and don’t hesitate to schedule an exam, including full oral cancer screening.
