Oral cancer generally begins with a painless stage during which the usual cancer signs may not be readily noticeable.  This makes the oral cancer examinations performed by Dr.Vice critically important.  The most common type of oral cancer is the malignant squamous cell carcinoma.  This oral cancer type usually originates in lip and mouth tissues.

There are many different places in the oral cavity and maxillofacial region in which oral cancers commonly occur, including:

  • Lips
  • Mouth
  • Tongue
  • Salivary Glands
  • Oropharyngeal Region (throat)
  • Gums
  • Face

When oral cancer is diagnosed in its earliest stages, treatment is generally very effective.

It is important to note that around 75 percent of oral cancers are linked with modifiable behaviors such as smoking, tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption.  Dr.Vice can provide literature and education on making lifestyle changes and smoking cessation.
