Early Detection is Key To Treating Oral Cancer

Are You At Risk For Oral Cancer?

Anyone can develop oral cancer, but some people are at a higher risk. These high-risk groups include those over the age of 50 and men, who are twice as likely as women to develop the disease. Smoking or chewing smokeless tobacco products, consuming alcohol excessively, and constant exposure to the sun at a young age are also risk factors.

Oral Cancer Detection is Key

Dr. Harbin & Dr. Jones and our team at Hendersonville Family Dentistry suggest our patients perform a monthly self examination to check for unusual red, or white patches, sores, lumps or thickenings anywhere inside the mouth, on the lips or in the throat and neck area.

We encourage you to give us a call at our office in Hendersonville, TN.
