Oral Cancer Screening Corvallis, OR
Oral Cancer Screenings Can Save Your Life
When it comes to cancer, early detection can save your life. Nearly 50,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer every year. While most oral cancers are very treatable, delayed diagnosis can lead to serious complications.
Fortunately, VELscope® offers an easy, painless, and non-invasive way to identify oral cancers and other abnormalities. The VELscope® system uses a harmless blue light to help spot abnormal tissue before it’s visible to the naked eye.
VELscope® is fast, easy, effective, and it can even help save your life.
