April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month!
Several recent studies have shown that gum disease may increase your risk for some type of oral cancer, which makes detection and treatment an even higher priority than before.
A study recently published in the Journal of Head and Neck Medicine showed a correlation between oral cancer and gum disease. Researchers looked at 178 patients who had been diagnosed with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), the most common type of cancer, which accounts for about 90% of all oral cancers. The cancer patients were compared to 123 healthy controls matched for age. They found that bone loss around the teeth–a symptom of gum disease–was significantly correlated with OSCC risk. People with cancer as a whole had lost more bone mass–an average of about 4mm–compared to those without cancer, who had lost around 3 mm.
