April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month.
The ADA News (3/28) reported that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, “an apt time for dental professionals to review information about oral cavity and oropharynx cancers.” These cancers account for nearly 3 percent of all cancers diagnosed in the United States and 1.6 percent of cancer deaths. The article noted that “the Association recognizes that early oral cancer diagnoses have the potential to have a significant impact on treatment decisions and outcomes, and it supports routine visual and tactile examinations, particularly for patients who are at risk, including those who use tobacco or who are heavy consumers of alcohol, according to House of Delegates Resolution 85H-2014.”

Oral Health Topics on ADA.org offers information on oral and oropharyngeal cancers for dental professionals, including statistics and a protocol for oral cancer examinations. The ADA’s consumer website, MouthHealthy.org, also provides information for patients about oral cancer.
