An Oral Cancer Biopsy Can Help You Receive Prompt, Specialized Care
The Oral Cancer Foundation reports that nearly 50,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. As with any form of cancer, the survival rate for oral cancer is highest among those who receive treatment in the earliest stages of the disease. However, oral cancer often does not present symptoms in the early stages, making regular screenings essential. Many general dentists include oral cancer screenings with every six-month checkup. If a screening reveals an unusual lesion, Dr. Michael A. Pikos and his team can perform an oral cancer biopsy at their Tampa, FL, (Tampa Bay Area Florida Offices) practice.
