Why Early Detection is the Key to Survival

Very Early Detection is Possible

Regular oral cancer screenings are so important because early detection is critical. Oral cancer is an ideal cancer to identify early by screening because it often begins with a small, identifiable, pre-malignant lesion in the mouth, which grows slowly over 2 – 8 years.

Oral Cancer Exams Can Be Routine

Early detection, in the pre-malignant stage, is simple and painless and can be easily included in any dentists’ routine oral check-ups. Yet according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, only 15% of the population reports ever having an oral examination, and only 7% reports receiving annual screenings. ²

Early Detection = 80% Survival Rate

The survival rate for oral cancer is very high if detected early – up to 80%. Also, the treatment and procedures for removal are much easier and less disfiguring the earlier it is detected.

Most Oral Cancer is Caught Too Late

Most oral cancer is detected only after it has advanced to stage III and IV, when cure rates are only 19%, which is abysmally low. ²
