Oral cancer is a potentially fatal cancer that affects the tissues of your mouth and throat. It kills thousands of people each year. Your chances of surviving oral cancer are greatest if the cancer is detected early enough that you can receive proper treatment. Therefore it is vital that you go for regular oral cancer screenings. Dr. Sudomir offer oral cancer screenings to Sterling Heights residents during regular dental exams.
A typical oral cancer screening begins with a check for any lumps or lesions inside your mouth and throat that could indicate a tumor. If an abnormality is detected, further tests may be included to rule out cancer.
We also use the VELscope Vx Cancer Detection system that uses a special light to detect tumors and lesions that are invisible to the naked eye, allowing for very early detection of possible cancerous tissue.
