Oral Cancer Check Brisbane City

At least three Australians are diagnosed with oral cancer every day

Like any other form of cancer, the need for regular screenings is important to ensure more success in early detection and treatment. Oral cancer is readily diagnosed but it is often discovered late in its development generally when it has spread to another location, such as the lymph nodes of the neck.

Unlike other screening tests such as mammograms, pap tests and prostate exams, an oral cancer check is much less invasive.

Bite Dental offer oral cancer checks as part of a regular dental check-up.

Frequently asked questions

What are the stages of oral cancer?

There are four stages of oral cancer. At stage one, the disease has not spread to other areas of the body or to the lymph nodes and the tumour is typically less than two centimetres in size. At stage two, the tumour is usually between two and four centimetres, and the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes. By stage three, the tumour has usually grown larger than four centimetres. At this stage, the cancer cells may still not have spread to the lymph nodes. At stage four, oral cancer cells have spread to the lymph nodes, as well as other areas of the body and nearby tissues. The tumours at this stage can be any size. The sooner oral cancer is detected, the better the chance of successful treatment. For this reason, we recommend regular screenings.
