Velscope Cancer Detection Test
We strongly recommend to all of our patients that they receive an annual Velscope exam to detect oral cancer. This is a quick, easy, and pain-free method to detect oral cancer in the earliest stage. It is a new technology that shines a light in the mouth and can detect changes in tissue density that may be abnormal and may be the start of oral cancer.
Since the rate of oral cancer has significantly increased over the last few years, having this test is extremely important. Unfortunately, the death rate for oral cancer is very high because it is not found until it reaches an advanced stage than can easily be seen. Patients that smoke or chew tobacco are at a very high risk for oral cancer and even those that are exposed to second hand smoke are at risk. STDs are also of great concern for oral cancer at all ages.
