Tobacco is no longer the only bad guy!

Demographics are changing: more than 50% diagnosed with oral cancer are now under the age of 50 years old.

Lump or thickening in the neck, face, jaw, cheek, tongue or gums. Difficulty chewing, swallowing or moving the tongue or

jaw. Persistent bad breath or soar taste in your mouth. Unexplained weight loss. Change in voice. Dentures or Partials that cause discomfort or do not fit well.
