Causes of Oral Cancer
Decreasing Oral Cancer Risk
Did you know that a long time exposure in the sun can cause oral cancer? Why do you think there are lip balms that are SPF 30,50, etc? But that’s not the only thing that causes oral cancer! You’re at greater risk of this type of cancer especially if you consume a lot of alcohol, if you smoke, or chew tobacco. Aside from alcohol, smoking, and chewing tobacco causing you other health problems, they give you a higher chance of developing abnormal growing cells known as cancer cells. The alcohol can cause oral cancer due to the fact that it slows down the ability of cells to repair their DNA that was damaged as a result of the chemicals in the tobacco. If you want to decrease your chances of developing oral cancer is by reducing the number of alcoholic drinks or just eliminate it from your life, quit smoking, and/or stop chewing tobacco! Save yourself the trouble from oral cancer and many other health problems that these bad habits bring. At Andres Cardenas office, you can make an appointment to get a check-up for oral cancer, and if it’s necessary to get an Oral Cancer Treatment right away.
