Oral cancer is one of the world’s most common cancers. Over 6.5 percent of all cancers diagnosed in Australia are oral cancers. 900 new cases of oral carcinoma are registered in Australia each year. Early cancerous lesions are painless and often invisible. Without oral cancer screening with the right equipment and an expert eye, they often go unnoticed until it is too late.
If your dentist is NOT screening you for oral cancer, they are not doing their job!
Fortunately, when diagnosed early, treatment for oral cancer can often be relatively simple and successful long term. However, your dentist MUST catch it early.
Oral cancer, although often invisible, can be revealed under a special cancer screening light. The procedure is simple, effective, and it takes only minutes. We also keep photographic records if needed of anything we would like to keep an eye on.
The cancer screening light we use in the clinic is called the VELscopeVx. At the moment, it is the best in the market.
Early detection saves lives. Our dental team is excited about this service because we know we will save someone’s life one day. Call Dr Fung today (02) 9389 9222 to book an oral cancer screening test using the VELscopeVx light.
