At Harvest Dental, your health is our top priority. During your oral cancer screening in Farmersville and Van Alstyne, Texas, we will look for signs of abnormal tissue (sores) in your mouth. We cannot determine whether these findings are cancerous during the oral exam, but if we see something suspicious Drs. Horsley and Walker may send you to an oral surgeon for additional tests. Fortunately, the great majority of these sores are not cancerous, but the only way to be certain is to have an oral surgeon perform a biopsy. A biopsy is when an oral surgeon removes some of the abnormal tissue and has it tested for cancer. Statistically, the earlier oral cancer is detected, the greater the chance of survival. Call 469-812-7100 to ensure that you are as healthy as you can be.
