Oral Pathology Services

The interior of your mouth typically boasts a smooth, coral pink mucosa. Any deviation from this norm could indicate an underlying pathological condition, with oral cancer being the most concerning possibility. Watch out for these early warning signs:

  • Red or white patches in the mouth
  • Non-healing sores that bleed easily
  • Unexplained lumps or thickening in the mouth lining
  • Persistent sore throat or hoarseness
  • Difficulty in chewing or swallowing

These changes may manifest on the lips, cheeks, palate, gums, tongue, or other facial and neck tissues. Interestingly, pain doesn’t always accompany oral pathology, emphasizing the importance of routine screenings.
