 “There can be life after cancer, the only prerequisite is early detection and then this cancer is going to be just a chapter in your life, not the whole story”

 Oral cancer or Mouth cancer is the cancerous growth anywhere in the oral cavity. It can be the primary tumor originating in the mouth itself or can be secondary one from a distant site of origin. Oral cancer most commonly involves tongue but it may involve floor of the mouth, lips, cheeks, palate or gums. Every year several of us die with the disease and thus we as dentists do have a role to play in saving such lives.

Today when the world is growing so fast, we can take help of the growing technology and detect these dreadful diseases at an early stage so that no shall die in any age. For this we need to do oral cancer screening which is an examination performed by a dentist or doctor to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. This mainly aims at detecting the mouth cancer early so that it does not spread and has better chances of cure. So if you find any non-healing ulcers or any growth or swelling which is unusual directly go to your dentist or doctor.

Often patients come with some problems of oral cavity which they believe are some minor diseases. Some of these on further evaluation have turned out be a precancerous lesion or at times a frank oral cancer or even some malignancy of other part of body which has involved oral cavity.  Life is uncertain; anything can happen at any time but there are certain things which can be done to lower these uncertainties. A regular screening of oral cavity by a dentist takes much lesser time and money than the agony caused by the disease itself. So it is always better to be on safer side. Never wait for anything big to happen; go to your dentist whenever you find anything suspicious as small lesions can many a times lead to large troubles.

We are writing this to raise awareness of the oral cancer and informing the people on how to lower their risk. This can be used as a platform to tell your stories so that others can be made aware of what they could go through. As stories told by others always have a long lasting impact on our minds.
