Why you should have regular oral cancer screenings

teeth, smile, dentist, healthAt what age should you be screened for oral cancer? Although uncommon, patients of oral cancer usually suffer from it unknowingly. That is why we all need regular oral cancer screening.

Key takeaways:

– 18 is the age where you are supposed to start going for screenings.

– Tobacco users are at a higher risk of oral cancer and should attend screenings as soon as they start smoking.

– Symptoms include; soreness on gums, mouth lining, throat and tongue.

Avoid smoking and ask your dentist to assess you, during teeth check up.
