April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April 2013 marks the 14th Annual Oral Cancer Awareness Month. 

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation approximately 42,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year, 8000 resulting in death. Dr Cosgrove wants to remind everyone that regular oral cancer screenings are the best method to detecting oral cancer early. Early detection is crucial, because the cancer can be treated  more easily. At Cosgrove Dental Care we utilize a device called VELscope to facilitate early detection. Call (205)967-4080 to schedule your oral cancer screening today!

To find out more about risk factors, signs, symptoms and treatment options visit the Oral Cancer FoundationADA and VELscope websites.
