Learn The Symptoms of Oral Cancer (infographic)

Posted on April 16th, 2018

On average, one person dies on average from oral cancer every hour in the United States. In 2018, an estimated 50,000 people will be diagnosed with this potentially deadly disease*.

If there is good news, it’s that the survival rate for oral cancer patients is 80 to 90 percent when the cancer is detected early. Unfortunately, it often isn’t caught until the disease’s latter stages.

When you come to Atlanta West Dentistry for a cleaning and exam, it’s about more than just fighting cavities and gum disease. If we notice oral cancer symptoms, we will let you know so you can get tested as soon as possible.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Take a moment to review the symptoms in the infographic below.
