Mouth Cancer Exam in Phoenix

Oral Cancer Screening in Phoenix, AZ - Rising Smiles DentistryPreventative The American Cancer Society currently recommends all adults to be screened for oral cancer at least once a year. Most lesions are not visible, and many do not hurt. In fact, many cancers appear in adults with no history of cancer!

It is imperative that patients become educated on the HPV-causing strains of oral cancer. As a volunteer in the Oral Cancer Walk, Dr. Moghbeli saw this firsthand.

A screening is simple: Dr. Moghbeli will check around the tongue, cheek, neck, lymph nodes, and soft and hard palate. If an abnormality is detected, Dr. Moghbeli will evaluate, make recommendations and if needed, referral to a specialist.
