VICI Dental delivers meticulous mouth cancer screening as part of your dental examination for prevention and peace of mind.

What Is Oral Cancer?

Oral cancer is defined by abnormal cell division, which can, in turn, cause lumps, bumps, and discolouration to otherwise healthy tissues.

Most people have heard of commonly occurring cancers such as breast cancer and lung cancer. However, these abnormal cells can appear in any part of the body. VICI Dental provides regular screenings to all of our patients, throughout Leeds and the wider area, as a normal part of your dental journey with us.

What Can Cause Oral Cancer?

Numerous risk factors can affect the likelihood of developing oral cancer. The leading causes are the combination of consuming tobacco products and alcohol, as well as STI’s such as HPV (human papillomavirus). Overexposure to sunlight is also a factor in cancerous cells developing on the lips.

What happens during a mouth cancer screening?

Your dentist will complete screening as part of your routine dental check-up appointments. The process itself is comfortable and uncomplicated. Your dentist will take care in feeling the glands underneath your chin and around the neck for any swelling, and they will inspect your mouth for signs of abnormality. The team will be looking for lumps, ulcers, and white patches that are not easily removed.

If you notice recent changes or ulcers that won’t heal, contact your dentist.
