April is National Oral Cancer Awareness month, a time when the dental community and health professionals alike rally together to fight against a serious disease. Did you know that oral cancer has a death rate of at least one person per hour of every day of the year? Literally, of those patients that will be diagnosed this year, it’s only estimated that 60% will live longer than five years. Those that do survive end up suffering from long-term issues like facial disfigurement or difficulties eating and speaking. The most shocking part of all this is that oral cancer has an 80-90% retention rate! The reason why a lot of patients end up suffering from oral cancer rather than being able to reverse its effects is that many patients don’t take the time to receive an oral cancer screening in Medina like they need and deserve to.
