Are you at risk of oral cancer?

Oral and pharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mouth and upper throat) collectively kills nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Of the people newly diagnosed with these cancers, only about 60% will live longer than 5 years. Moreover, many who do survive suffer long-term problems such as severe facial disfigurement or difficulties eating and speaking. The death rate associated with oral and pharyngeal cancers remains particularly high due to the cancer being routinely discovered late in its development.
The Oral Cancer Foundation encourages you to seek a checkup, and the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance has designated April 2-9, 2017 as Oral Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW).
