A quick health tip for my cherished patients!

October 25th, 2010 — 03:35 pm

During the oral cancer screening test I saw another patient today that puts the smokeless tobacco between his gums and cheeks and now has a lesion in the area :(

Long term Snuff users have 50% higher chance of gum and cheek cancer(American Cancer Society).

It  is estimated that over 4800 men and 2400 women will be diagonsed with oral cancer every year(nearly two-third are male).
