According to the American Cancer Society, more than 50,000 adults across the United States alone will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. However, because many signs and symptoms of oral cancer mimic lesions that often go away on their own, or are painless, many people remain unaware of its presence. With Oral CDx®, our office can quickly and painlessly sample any suspicious red, white, or mixed lesion in the mouth to screen for oral cancer.
The key to a positive outcome of care relies on the early detection and treatment of oral cancer. By incorporating the latest tissue sampling and analysis technology, we can better protect the health of our patients. The Oral CDx BrushTest offers a non-invasive, painless, and convenient method of care to screen suspicious red, white, or mixed lesions for the presence of dysplastic cells and oral cancer.
As the first step in care, we gather a tissue sample by rotating a uniquely designed sampling brush. This sample is then prepared and sent out for laboratory analysis. As the progression from a suspicious lesion and dysplastic cells to cancer can take some time, this innovative system promotes early detection, treatment, and optimal outcomes of care.More Information
