Oral cancer kills as many Americans as melanoma (the most serious type of skin cancer) and twice as many as cervical cancer. And everyone is at risk: 25 percent of oral cancer patients do not use tobacco or abuse alcohol.
With ViziLite, it’s very easy for Dr. Mitchmore to spot abnormal or precancerous cells. All you have to do is rinse your mouth with a special screening solution. If you do have any abnormal cells, the ViziLite will spot them and we can continue with an Oral CDx brush biopsy. As with any cancer, early detection and treatment can make the difference in successfully treating the disease. This is why we screen you at every annual exam.
