Early detection and treatment of oral cancer significantly increases the chance for successful treatment. The American Cancer Society reports that more than 7,000 deaths result from oral cancer out of the 30,000 annually diagnosed cases.

Oral cancer often doesn’t manifest with the usual signs of cancer, so without a professional screening from Dr. Buttaro, it can go undetected until it’s in an advanced stage.
