The Steps for Oral cancer screenings

The dental professional will review your medical history, including any past or present health conditions or medications that may affect your oral health.

The dental professional will visually inspect your mouth, checking for any abnormalities such as lumps, bumps, or discoloration.

The dental professional may use their hands or instruments to examine your mouth, tongue, and throat for any abnormalities or areas of tenderness.

If any abnormalities are detected, the dental professional may take a small tissue sample, or biopsy, for further testing.

If necessary, the dental professional may refer you to a specialist for further testing, such as a CT scan or MRI.

The dental professional will discuss the results of your screening with you and provide recommendations for follow-up care if necessary.
