Newport Beach Dentists Explain the 9 Warning Signs of Oral Cancer, PART 1

  1. 1. Newport Beach Dentists Explain the 9 Warning Signs of Oral Cancer, PART 1 This three-part article series discusses the various symptoms that could indicate the presence of oral cancer, as well as what people can do to prevent this terrible disease. Being diagnosed with any kind of cancer is a terribly shocking and traumatic ordeal, but one of the nastier strains of this disease is oral cancer. The devastating damage and painful symptoms of oral cancer often leave patients permanently emotionally and physically scarred, but the good news is that early detection often means a full recovery and a long, healthy life. There are two ways early detection can be facilitated and the first is through regular scheduled dental appointments during which your Newport Beach dentist performs an oral cancer screening. The second is through a greater public awareness of the signs and symptoms of oral cancer, and then prompt action when something suspicious is spotted in the mouth. This three-part article series is geared at helping Newport Beach residents understand what the warning signs of oral cancer are and who might be at a greater risk of developing this terrible disease. We’ll also take a look at the best practices for its prevention. First, however, let’s try and understand what oral cancer is and why it happens… What is Oral Cancer? “Any kind of cancer refers to the growth of abnormal cells,” explains a Newport Beach cosmetic dentist. “Oral cancer, also known as oropharyngeal cancer, refers to the growth of these abnormal cells in the oral cavity or the lips and is most often noted in the squamous cells that line the inner cheeks and lips. “Oral cancer typically initially appears as a soft tissue sore or ulcer that doesn’t heal, or an area of roughness and/or discoloration. Areas where oral cancer can develop include the tongue, buccal lining (inner cheeks), inside the lips, outside the lips, the palate and the soft tissues at the back of the mouth.”
  2. 2. What are the Risk Factors of Oral Cancer? Some Newport Beach residents are at a greater risk of developing oral cancer than others, and understanding the risk factors for this devastating and potentially fatal disease can help people minimize their chances of ever getting it. The risk factors for oral cancer include:  Smoking or chewing tobacco.  Heavy alcohol consumption.  Being male: “Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about your gender, but understanding that you’re naturally at a greater risk of oral cancer should compel you to steer clear of the other risk factors,” explains a Newport Beach dentist.  Having HPV – Human Papillomavirus, which is typically contracted through intimate contact and kissing.  Repeated overexposure to the UV rays in sunlight or in tanning beds can cause cancerous growths on the lips.  A family history of cancer. If any of these risks apply to you, it’s not too late to change your lifestyle, especially if you’re male and have a family history of oral cancer. It’s essential that you do everything in your power today to prevent getting sick tomorrow,” urge Newport Beach cosmetic dentists. Stay Tuned for Part 2 To read about the signs and symptoms of oral cancer and the best methods for prevention, stay tuned for the second installment of this three-part article series.
