Posted By pcfadmin On March 1, 2011 @ 3:18 pm In | No Comments

Oral cancer is cancer of the mouth or throat. This year, an estimated 42,440 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer and nearly 8,390 will die of the disease. Oral cancer is twice as common in men as in women. Not using tobacco and not drinking alcohol in excess can prevent most oral cancer. However, one in four people diagnosed with oral cancer has no risk factors. It’s important to see your dentist regularly for screenings.
