Dental cancer prophylaxis
Dental cancer prophylaxisOral cancer is not a widely-discussed topic in Poland, and its detection rate is extremely low.
Oral cancer is the second most frequent (after laryngeal cancer) head and neck cancer in Poland. In the USA, it is the 6th most common cancer. It is usually diagnosed after it has reached III and IV grade because there is no early screening diagnostics. Developing cancer remains asymptomatic for a long time.
Oral cancer, if it is not diagnosed early, leads to severe damage in the human body. The patient often loses the sense of taste, and sometimes the ability to eat and speak. That is why it is so important to detect the foci of the disease within the oral cavity using screening methods and prophylaxis.
