Oral Cancer Screening

Find Mouth Cancer In Its Early Stages At Our Austin Office

Cedar Park dentist, Dr. Brian Scaff and his caring team do not want to scare you, but would like to educate you about oral cancer, sometimes called mouth cancer. There are some rather important statistics we want to share with you.oral cancer screening with Vizilite in Round Rock and Cedar Park

  • Every day, in the US, 100 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer.
  • Every hour of every day, a person dies from mouth cancer.
  • After adding in laryngeal throat oral cancer, a subcategory of mouth cancer, about 12,000 additional new oral cancer cases per year are diagnosed and mortality rates are decidedly higher.
  • Too often, mouth cancer isn’t detected and thus diagnosed until it is in the late stages and this is why there is a significantly high mortality rate of about 43% at five years from diagnosis.

Who is at Risk for Oral Cancer?

While tobacco and alcohol use are primary lifestyle risk factors for mouth cancer, surprisingly 27% of mouth cancer victims do not use tobacco or alcohol, or have any other lifestyle risk factors.
