National Cancer Institute estimates there to be more than 100 types of cancer. Among them is oral cancer. Each year more than 30,000 new cases of oral cancer are reported, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
THERE ARE 2 DISTINCT PATHWAYS TO CANCER IN THE MOUTH.
The signs and symptoms of oral cancer can often be seen or felt, and any red or white patch, ulcer or lump can be a potential sign. If oral cancer is detected early enough, when the lesions are small, treatment is most effective.
Join the fight to raise awareness of oral cancer.
Delta Dental of New Jersey is proud to sponsor The Oral Cancer Foundation Walk/Run for Awareness, on September 18th. Money raised helps the foundation fund research, raise awareness and promote early detection. Learn more about the walk.
