Reducing Your Risks for Oral Cancer

Posted .

To reduce your risks of oral cancer, it is strongly recommended to stop tobacco use in any form, limit your alcohol intake to no more than two servings a day, and eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. A recent study on oral cancer that suggests increasing fruits and vegetables in your diet reduces your risk for oral cancer due to a cancer-fighting agent found in these foods. A healthy lifestyle does more than benefit our bodies, it helps our oral health, as well.

Treatment for oral cancer may include surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiation. Being proactive is very important when it comes to oral cancer. Survival rate is high for those who are diagnosed early.
