©Roz Fulmer,"Making a Difference Today!" “I like YOUR Odds” against Oral Cancer Appx. 36,000 people in the US diagnosed with oral cancer in 2010. Fifth year in a row with a major increase 11% in the rate of occurrence of oral cancers. 100 new cases each day are being diagnosed by dentist across the US. 80 – 90% Survival rate if detected early
©Roz Fulmer,"Making a Difference Today!" “Tobacco is no longer the only bad guy!” Demographics are changing: more than 50% diagnosed with oral cancer are now under the age of 50 years old. HPV16 is increasing in incidence as the causative etiology and is on track to replace tobacco as the primary cause of oral cancers.
©Roz Fulmer,"Making a Difference Today!" Symptoms Sore throat or earache that is persistent and does not heal within two weeks. Sore in the mouth or on the tongue that does not heal. Lump or thickening in the neck, face, jaw, cheek, tongue or gums. Difficulty chewing, swallowing or moving the tongue or jaw. Persistent bad breath or soar taste in your mouth. Unexplained weight loss. Change in voice. Dentures or Partials that cause discomfort or do not fit well.
©Roz Fulmer,"Making a Difference Today!" Other Risk Factors Gender = About two-thirds are patients are men in 2009 due to tobacco products like, using chew tobacco products next to gum tissue. Females and Age = Due to the increase of Oral Sex by minors, this is rapidly changing due to HPV. The age factor is getting younger because of HPV. Prolonged Sun Exposure (Lip Cancer) people who work outdoors and are exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Tongue, Lip and Neck Piercings Poor in Nutrition, especially a diet low in fruits and vegetables Denture/Partial wearers which are ill-fitting and uncomfortable Immune Suppressive Drugs Anyone exposed to Radiation in the early 1950’s – 1995.
©Roz Fulmer,"Making a Difference Today!" The Pain-Free Screening Early Detection saves Lives Get it Early – Get it All! Early detection screening tools such as mammograms, PAP smear and PSA tests have greatly reduced death rates for breast, cervical and prostate cancers, respectively. Now (Name of Provider) DDS/DMD, who is located near you, has a new technology to use in addition to visual/manual screening methods. Early detection is the key to reducing the devastating impact of oral cancer on patients and their families. Oral cancer is one of the most curable diseases when it’s caught early. That’s why Dr. (Name of Dentist) performs an annual Velscope exam in combination with a conventional visual examination. Velscope uses technology that has been proven successful in identifying other types of precancerous and cancerous abnormalities. It’s particularly important for patients at increased risk for oral cancer. When premalignancies or early stage oral cancer is found treatment is simpler, less invasive and more than 90% successful. Velscope and Dr. (Name of Dentist) identify oral lesions sooner and gives you, “Peace of Mind” annually.
