Following the Path of Oral Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Description
Open Tabs
Description:

The path to oral cancer diagnosis involves the diagnosis and treatment of the cancer. The diagnosis of oral cancer involves the discussion of risk factors with the patient, a hands-on evaluation of radiographs, intraoral tissue, and the head and neck area. Once a suspicion is established of a lesion, the patient is referred for further evaluation by the treatment specialist. It is important to realize that the sooner a specious lesion if diagnosed and staged, the better the outcome. The lecture further covers the need for the general dentist and specialist to work together with post-treatment care.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Explore the basics of the oral cancer screening exam
  • Examine the specialist’s viewpoint of staging and treatment for defined cancer lesions
  • Discuss the follow-up care necessary for head and neck cancer patients
