In recent years the examinations and tests for diagnosing cancer have improved greatly. This is significant, as with cancer it is essential that an early diagnosis is provided. This is true for all cancers, including oral cancer.
Unfortunately, dentists sometimes make mistakes and –
- fail to recognise that symptoms are those of oral cancer,
- incorrectly diagnose symptoms as being of another less serious condition,
- fail to undertake the necessary examinations.
In the above circumstances an urgent referral for further investigation is not made and there is a delay in the diagnosis of oral cancer.
A delay in the diagnosis of oral cancer can lead to further pain and suffering, less effective treatment, fewer treatment options and sadly, in the worst cases, reduced life expectancy and death.
