Oral Cancer Screenings at Owens Community College

Owens Community College invited local residents to a free screening for oral cancer Wednesday. Owens' Dental Hygiene Program along with the Toledo Dental Hygienists' Association and Promedica performed the exams to participate in Dental Hygiene Month. Dr. Ted Beitelcheese, DDS says that early detection of the cancer is an important key to treatment. "Oral cancer is a disease that still strikes a lot of Americans and unfortunately its one of those cancers that has not really been approved upon when it comes to survivability and treatment." Beitelcheese said. "Oral cancer in its early stages is totally symptomatic... People aren't aware of anything (oral cancer). It doesn't hurt, it doesn't burn... there is hardly any swelling and many times, most of the time, its only found in early detection in exams a such we are doing today." Beitelcheese says that oral cancer is commonly caused by smoking and alcohol consumption. However, he says that oral cancer is on a 25% rise in younger adults and children who don't smoke and drink. "This is why we are stressing these kinds of examinations even more." According to WebMD, symptoms of oral cancer can appear as a growth or a sore in the month that doesn't go away. The sores can appear on the lips, cheeks, hard and soft palate, sinuses, throat and floor of the mouth. By Michael Melchiorre www.facebook.com/michaelmelchiorrewnwo

Oral Cancer - A Guide for Dental Hygienists | APLUS Institute | Toronto Dental Hygiene School

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth, including the gums, the lips, the surface of the tongue, the cheek, the roof and floor of the mouth, the tonsils and even the salivary glands. It’s most accurately compared to head and neck cancer and is usually treated similarly. A scope (Velscope) can be used to perform regular screenings at a patients dental office. It has a special light that can show the early signs of cancer in someone’s mouth. Research shows that smoking and chewing tobacco, excessive consumption of alcohol and too much sun exposure to the lips (outdoors or in sun-beds), among other things, increases the chance of developing oral cancer. Some symptoms of oral cancer include mouth ulcers that do not heal, red/white patches inside the mouth, swelling that is present for over three weeks, and pain when swallowing. It’s important to note that other conditions and diseases may have similar symptoms. Seeking a doctor to get answers right away would definitely be the best thing to do. To get a diagnosis, a doctor or dentist will check the mouth and throat for signs of cancer. If there is anything suspicious, a biopsy is performed, most often with a local anaesthetic. If the diagnosis returns positive for cancer, further tests are done to determine the stage. This typically depends on the size of the tumor and how much it has spread. Treatment for oral cancer can be surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or a combination of these.

6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer
 
07:27
6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer: 1. Sore throat A sore throat is rarely worth worrying about — after all, it can be caused by a range of fairly harmless afflictions, from over-exerting the voice muscles to seasonal allergies to the common cold. Generally speaking, a sore throat is either very temporary or just the first sign that a head cold is setting in. However, a sore throat could indicate that an individual is developing throat cancer. While it can be difficult to distinguish between a common cold and throat cancer, in the latter case the pain will not go away after a few days or even weeks. In essence, if you develop a painful sore throat without any of the other symptoms of a head cold, and the sore throat doesn’t go away after a week or so, then it may be time to speak to a doctor about a thorough examination. 2. Mouth pain Like many of the other symptoms on this list, mouth pain doesn’t necessarily mean there’s anything to worry about. After all, it can be caused by many things, from burning your tongue on hot food to using a new toothbrush. Of course, mouth pain can also be the result of poor oral hygiene, such as failing to brush, floss or rinse on a regular basis. But this pain should subside in time, particularly if the afflicted individual is taking care with their oral hygiene. And there are other indicators that something more serious is up, including red and white patches on the gums, tongue, or mouth lining. Bleeding gums and pain in the jaw could also be indicators that the mouth pain one is feeling is more serious and could be linked to head and neck cancer. If you experience a few of these symptoms, or your mouth pain doesn’t subside after a few days, it would be wise to speak with your doctor and/or dentist about the issue. 3. Difficulty talking Anyone with a serious throat infection or bad head cold will tell you that these relatively harmless afflictions can make it rather difficult to speak. Colds and infections of the throat can make it difficult. In most cases this pain will subside after a few days or a week or two. If the pain lasts, however, it could be a sign that there is a more serious problem affecting the throat, including the pharynx. Persistent pain in the throat making it difficult to speak should be considered serious and should be followed by a thorough examination by a physician to rule out throat cancer. 4. Trouble swallowing There are a few health conditions that can make it difficult to swallow, including moderately serious issues like strep throat. But even the common cold can present an individual with a sore throat that makes it difficult to swallow. However, if this pain persists — and there are none of the other symptoms that accompany the typical head cold, such as a cough and stuffy nose — then it’s a good idea to visit a doctor to determine the cause of the issue. It could simply be irritated as a result of an infection or seasonal allergies, but it may also be linked to throat cancer. If it’s the latter, it’s better to catch the problem early, thereby giving medical specialists more time to fight the disease. 5. Sinus pain Sinus pain is most often associated with seasonal allergies or the common cold. However, it can also be the result of structural issues affecting the nose and sinuses; in other words, if there are blockages in the nose, it could lead to plugged sinuses that don’t clear and lead to significant sinus pain and headaches. Additionally, dryness can cause the nose to feel stuffy and may even result in nose bleeds. The onset of sinus pain should be met with a visit to a physician who can help you determine if the problem is related to allergies, blockages, general dryness, or something more serious, such as nose cancer. If the problem does not respond to medications, such as antibiotics, then there’s an increased chance that it is a more serious issue. 6. Pain or numbness caused by inflammation The emergence of cancer in the head and neck area can lead to significant inflammation. If there’s a serious problem developing, an individual may notice swelling in their jaw or in the area just below their chin. The feeling of swelling — which is often accompanied by pain — in this part of the head could be the result of cancer emerging in the salivary glands. Inflammation resulting from the development of head and neck cancer can also lead to feelings of numbness or paralysis in the face muscles; this can also be accompanied by pain. If this pain lasts for more than a few days, it’s crucial the individual contact their physician right away to carry out an examination of the head and neck area.

How to Prevent Mouth Cancer|tongue cancer treatment options
 
03:56
How to Prevent Mouth Cancer|tongue cancer treatment options Mouth (oral) cancer, a type of head and neck cancer, is any cancerous growth located in the oral cavity. As with any type of cancer, oral cancer is a serious medical condition that can lead to permanent injury or death. Although mouth cancer can occur in anyone, 75% or more of all mouth cancer can be linked to modifiable behaviors, such as tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption. In order to avoid mouth cancer, you can take preventative measures. 1 Maintain a good oral care regimen. Maintaining a good oral care routine helps to reduce the risk of mouth cancer by preventing infections and other oral diseases. Brushing your teeth, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash all contribute to an effective oral care routine. Repeated and long-term gum disease, poor oral hygiene, and missing teeth can lead to infections that put your mouth under high risk of cancer. Make sure you don’t have ill-fitting dentures or sharp, broken teeth that can cause repeated mouth irritation and increase your risk of mouth cancer. If you feel like your dentures get dislodged every time you speak or chew, it means that they do not fit well and have to be relined or replaced. Denture adhesives containing zinc can be toxic to the cells lining the mouth, and should be avoided. 2 Conduct oral self-examinations to check for any pre-cancer indicators. Irritation of tissues inside your mouth caused by dental trauma is one of the factors possibly associated with mouth cancer. You can check inside your own mouth using a hand mirror to look for any abnormalities that could be indicators of pre-cancer or cancer. Catching cancer early is one of the best ways to ensure you can treat it before real damage occurs. Check all the areas of your mouth, such as your gums, tongue (back and sides), lips, the insides of your cheeks, the roof of your mouth, and under your tongue. If you see any color changes, like white, red, or grey patches, you should visit your dentist for a check-up, as it may indicate a pre cancerous condition. Also, check for lumps, bumps, painful areas in your mouth. If you have an ulcer that is not healing, or if you have repeated ulcers in the same area, then visit your dentist immediately to get your mouth examined. Conducting a self-examination at least once a month for a few minutes is a good precaution to take against mouth cancer. 3 Visit your dentist regularly to get a professional opinion. Even better than giving yourself a self-examination, is allowing a dental professional to examine the state of your mouth. Dentists have been trained extensively in many varieties of mouth disease. Your dentist will be able to quickly and confidently assess the state of your oral health, and warn you if mouth cancer has developed or could develop. It is important to visit your dentist every 6 months for a complete oral checkup. You can also ask for an oral-cancer screening test if you are under high risk for cancer (for example, due to regular tobacco use). Your dentist will check the entire mouth and he/she will identify the precancerous changes in your mouth at early stage. These dental check ups are really important to reduce cancer risks, especially in tobacco and alcohol users. If pre-cancerous growths (Leukoplakia or Erythroplakia) are identified, your dentist or oral surgeon will remove the abnormal growth areas. SUBSCRIBE TO MORE VIDEOS
