Early detection is key in the battle against cancer, & this is no different with oral cancer. Even if you don’t smoke, keep in mind that 25% of oral-cancer diagnoses are for non-smokers. It’s important that every patient receive a simple & pain-free exam from Dr. Emami. Remember that when caught early, oral cancer has an 80 to 90% survival rate. So don’t put off your examination another minute!
