dentist looks out for your overall health“There’s no symptom of oral cancer per se. It could be a lesion. It could be a trauma from a coffee burn or you biting into your cheek. It could be ill-fitting dentures, hoarsens of the throat or voice, [even] bad breath. As a result, it often gets overlooked or misdiagnosed.
