Oral cancer is one of the most commonly detected cancers. Studies show that with early detection, 90% of people who receive treatment are cured, whereas a delay in seeking treatment drastically reduces success rates. Early discovery means we’re able to act quickly, offering a range of treatment options including less invasive action.

- Development of white or red patches in your mouth, lips or gums
