When looking inside your mouth, if you happen to notice any change in appearance call our office so Dr. Sedaros can help determine if there are signs for a pathological process.
We all know someone who has gotten cancer, so it’s best to keep an eye on particular causes in case you find yourself with any abnormalities. The most serious of these pathological processes is oral cancer. “If you happen to notice reddish or whitish patches in your mouth, a sore that fails to heal or bleeds easily, or a chronic sore throat with difficulty chewing or swallowing than you could be showing signs for a pathologic process or cancerous growth,” the Oral Cancer Foundation explains.
You can detect any of these changes on your lips, cheeks, palate, or gum tissue around your teeth, tongue, face, or neck. These changes do not always have to cause you pain in order to be oral pathology or even oral cancer. So if you find yourself with any changes to your mouth or face, then our office will be happy to help you in any way we can.
We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. If you have any questions about Oral Pathology in Melbourne, Florida, please call our office at (321) 610-7868.
