During the month of April, in honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Malden Dental Center will be providing complimentary oral cancer screenings to help detect head and neck cancer in its early stages. Come in for your screening and let’s identify oral disease early, while it’s still easy to treat and before it possibly progresses to cancer!

In the U.S., someone dies of oral cancer every hour of every day. The death rate has remained relatively constant for almost five decades. Approximately 51,550 new individuals will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the US every day of the year.

There are usually no severe symptoms such as pain or bleeding in the early stages of head and neck cancer, which can affect the mouth, throat, neck, vocal cords, sinuses, tonsils, salivary glands and lips.

Instead, there may be an unexplained lump or bump in the tongue, neck or lip or changes in speech, swallowing or breathing. While this screening takes only five minutes or less, the benefits are priceless. The cure rate is 80 percent or higher when this disease is found early.

An oral cancer screening should be conducted every year, so take advantage of this free offer and get screened today. Call Malden Dental Center at 781-322-5070 today or email Nicole Rabideau at nicole@maldendentalcenter.com to make an appointment for your complimentary screening. Nicole and the rest of our staff can answer any questions you might have so feel free to give us a call anytime.
