Think you don’t know anyone who’s had oral cancer? See if you recognize any of these names: Babe Ruth, General Ulysses S. Grant, Sigmund Freud, Rod Stewart, Michael Douglas, George Harrison and Diane Von Furstenberg. For 2016, the American Cancer Society estimates that about 48,330 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or oropharyngeal (throat) cancer, and some 9,570 people will die from these cancers. And while there’s no telling for certain, some of these diagnoses and deaths might have been prevented by one simple procedure: an oral cancer screening. At Distinguished Dental, Dr. McIntosh and her staff routinely conduct oral cancer screenings in Fort Worth, TX during dental checkups in order to spot the early warning signs of this otherwise fatal disease.
