FROM THE ADA

April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Oral cavity and oropharynx cancers account for 2.9 percent of all cancers diagnosed in the United States and 1.6 percent of cancer deaths. The American Dental Association recognizes that early oral cancer diagnoses have the potential to significantly impact treatment decisions and outcomes. The ADA also supports routine visual and tactile examinations, particularly for patients who are at risk, including those who use tobacco or who are heavy consumers of alcohol.

Take time this month to review statistics, find a protocol for oral cancer examinations and educate your patients about their risk factors and signs and symptoms to watch for.

Professional resources can be found on ADA.org. Patient resources on oral cancer, risk factors and the association with HPV can be found on MouthHealthy.org.
