Oral cancer strikes three times as many victims as cervical cancer. It is one of the few cancers that has not experienced a significant reduction in incidence over the past 30 years, and recent research indicates a strong link with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which can be sexually transmitted. For this reason, many oral health care professionals now believe that all individuals over the age of 18 need at least one comprehensive oral examination per year, or, ideally, with every dental hygiene visit. While the incidence of oral cancer may be on the rise, early screening, diagnosis and treatment planning does save lives.
