Oral Cancer Screening Services for Patients in Sun City, AZ

If you’re interested in undergoing an oral cancer screening, you can turn to the specialists at Burns Dentistry. Our team possesses more than 100 years of combined experience and we have multiple offices throughout the area, including one conveniently located in Sun City, Arizona. Although we always look for signs of oral cancer during regular dental cleanings, we also offer more thorough screening services for patients who are especially concerned about their risk of developing this malignancy.

Common Oral Cancer Symptoms

The symptoms of oral cancer (also referred to as “mouth cancer”) can vary depending on the specific type of malignancy present and how far it’s progressed. With that said, some common oral cancer symptoms include:

  • Nonhealing patches or sores on the lips or within the mouth or throat that bleed easily
  • Rough or crusty areas on the lips, gums, or interior of the mouth
  • Difficulty speaking, chewing, swallowing, or moving the tongue or jaw
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Earache
  • Unexplained pain, tenderness, or numbness in the mouth, face, or neck
  • Unexplained weight loss

If you’re experiencing symptoms like these, it’s important to undergo oral cancer screening as soon as possible. You should also consider attending a screening if you have any oral cancer risk factors, such as a smoking habit or a family history of oral cancer.

The Kennedy's

“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
