Oral Cancer Prevention
The risk of oral cancer may increase with irritation to the gums, tongue or mouth. Self-examinations are strongly advised in order to quickly detect the any possibly abnormalities.
To perform self-examination, carefully assess the mouth in all areas including the gums, teeth, tongue, cheeks, roof of the mouth, and throat. The tissue underneath the lips should also be checked by lifting the lips to evaluate the inner tissue.
