Oral Cancer Screenings in Murphy
The statistics behind oral cancer are grim. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, the disease claims approximately one life every hour, with thousands of new diagnoses occurring every year. What's more, many of these diagnoses aren't made until the disease is already well-developed. Once oral cancer matures, it's difficult to successfully treat, which accounts for its high mortality rate.
At Murphy Family Dentistry, we're doing our part to reverse this trend by offering oral cancer screenings. We encourage our patients to receive screenings on a routine basis, because an early detection is your best hope of making a full recovery.
