Oral Cancer Screenings

Posted in News


Oral cancer screenings provide a practical way to detect cancer before symptoms begin showing. As a result, it becomes easy to detect the disease in its early stages. This makes it considerably easier to intervene and treat the condition. Late detection means the cancer cells have already started spreading in the body.

Ongoing research is aimed at creating a better understanding of how the disease works and the associated risk factors. This information allows medical practitioners to recommend screenings for individuals considered to be high risk. In addition, it helps determine the type of tests that should be carried out and the frequency.

At Dr. Henry Windle, we always consider all the relevant factors when recommending screenings. However, this does not mean a patient has cancer. It is a necessary precaution even when there are no symptoms. In some cases, the results of the screenings may be abnormal. This necessitates additional tests known as diagnostic examinations to ensure accuracy.


The examination protocol is a proven method that has been developed through extensive research and experiments. We use the latest medical equipment for the best results. Specialized supplies and instruments are needed to effectively handle the tests. These include mirrors (laryngeal and nasopharyngeal), tongue pads, adequate light source and more.

Oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer

Oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer are characterized by the development of malignant cells in the mouth and throat. Oral cavity can form in a number of tissues, including gingiva (gums), hard palate, buccal mucosa and the retromolar trigone. On the other hand, oropharyngeal cancer forms in the tissues of the oropharynx, including tonsils, soft palate, middle part of the pharynx (throat) and back of the tongue.

The diagnostic process requires thorough examination using an external hands-free light source or in the presence of an assistant. This allows the physician to conduct bimanual palpation, hold tongue blades or gauze using both hands.
