What Is An Oral Cancer Screening?
An alternative light-assisted oral cancer screening at Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA is typically performed during a dental exam and can help detect any symptoms of oral cancer that can be hard to notice on your own. Oral cancer can occur anywhere in the mouth, including the gums, throat, cheeks, lips, and tongue. If left undiscovered, oral cancer may spread and become life-threatening so it's important to have a dental professional check for signs. Dr. Junée F. Gardy performs alternative light-assisted oral cancer screenings using the Identafi® light system for patients to provide the best chance of treatment and recovery. Find out more today by calling our Naples, FL practice to schedule an appointment.
What to Expect During An Oral Cancer Screening
To begin your alternative light-assisted oral cancer screening, Dr. Gardy will ask questions about your medical history to determine if you have any risk factors for oral cancer. Next, she will take a close look inside your mouth with Identafi, which is a handheld light that enhances the visibility of any suspicious-looking sores or discolored tissue that may not be seen with the naked eye. She will also inspect the surrounding areas outside of your mouth, like your face, neck, and lips, for any abnormalities. If anything suspicious or concerning is found, Dr. Gardy may recommend you have a follow-up exam or biopsy done for further evaluation.
