Oral cancer is not hidden within the body in some hard to find location requiring an invasive examination, the majority of the time it is literally in plain view, right under your nose, and can be seen with the naked eye or felt with the fingers. In most cases, early, highly survivable stages are easily detected in a 3 to 5 minute painless visual and tactile examination. Even the precancerous lesions which can progress into malignancy can be seen with the naked eye.
An oral examination conducted by Dr. Petrusha will have a definite impact on reducing the death rate associated with oral cancer.
