Have you detected any oral cancer symptoms, and are you in need of an oral cancer screening? If you have not already done so, it is important to always inspect your smile every morning after you wake up to determine if you are suffering from oral and throat cancer, or susceptible to the disease. Due to the fact that over 40,000 Americans every year may be diagnosed with oral and throat cancer, it is important to make sure that you receive treatments as soon as possible if you are suffering from the condition.

To ensure that your mouth is adequately cared for, always look for various symptoms of oral cancer and visual clues alerting you to its presence. If you notice any velvety white, red or speckled patches along with oral inflammation or eroded gums, it could be linked to the disease. Furthermore, lumps or bumps, unexplained bleeding, a general feeling of mouth sensitivity or sores that are persistent for weeks on end, you may be under the thralls of oral cancer. Other common symptoms include difficulties chewing or swallowing, the presence of a chronic sore throat and dramatic weight loss.
