Oral Pathology

The evaluation and diagnosis of growths and lesions within the mouth and jaws is an important aspect of the practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Patients referred for evaluation undergo a thorough examination of their head and neck areas.

Not all growths within the mouth are oral cancer. However, the prevention and early diagnosis of cancer is important to the increased survival and prognosis of the patient. Biopsies and/or other tests are performed, when required, to arrive at a diagnosis and to allow the development of an appropriate treatment plan.
