Looking for the Signs
There are two ways to look for the signs of oral cancer. One is just through looking in the mirror every day. The second is by going through a more thorough self-exam. During the self-exam you need to look for signs.
The signs can involve looking for something specific, but they also can involve looking for things that change. That is why it is important to perform regular self-exams to spot changes in your oral health.There are specific things to look for that could signal a problem with oral cancer.
