Oral Cancer: The Silent Killer:


One American dies each hour from oral cancer, a statistic that has changed little in the past 40 years. And the rate of oral cancer has increased by nearly 6% according to the American Cancer Society.

Often, oral cancer is discovered too late to allow treatment that is effective. This results in serious disfigurement, reduction in the quality of one's life, and even death. The good news is that early detection has a 90% cure rate!

The Statistics Are Alarming!


Of the cancers wer hear about the most (cervical cancer, Hodgkin's Lymphoma, laryngeal cancer, and skin cancer), the death rate for oral cancer is higher than any of the above.

  • The Oral Cancer rate is 3 times greater in the US than cervical cancer.
  • Elderly patients and men above the age of 45 are in the highest risk factor of developing oral cancer.
  • With the incidence rate at 1/3 higher than whites, men of African ancestry are at an especially high risk in all age groups, and have a mortality rate nearly twice as high.
  • Early diagnosis is critical in reducing the high mortality rate associated with oral cancer.
