Oral Cancer Awareness month
- Posted on: Mar 10 2017
The American Cancer Society estimates that there are 30,000 new cases of various types of oral cancer diagnosed each year…and only half of these patients survive 5 years after diagnosis.
We have always preformed oral cancer screenings at every exam-but the Velscope allows us to “look deeper” and more accurately to better protect you.
The Velscope is a non-invasive, hand held light that emits a cone of blue light into your mouth. Because changes in the cells, looking at the tissues through the special eyepiece allows us to spot possible tumors at the very earliest stage. The Velscope allows us to see the changes even before those changes can be felt or are seen with the naked eye.
We value the health of our patients. In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness month our office is offering a complimentary Velscope screening, with the mention of this newsletter. Your health and well being is our greatest concern….and we will always bring you the best and latest advances that benefit your health.
