Oral Pathology Specialists in Las Vegas, NV
The mouth is lined with a thin layer of skin, called the mucosa, that can become affected by injury, cancer or other conditions that would need to be addressed by an oral pathology specialist. There are several different warning signs that this layer of skin may be in need of speciality care, including:
– Sores in the mouth
– Sores or cuts that don’t heal
– A lump on the skin or on the cheek lining
– Sore tongue or throat soreness when swallowing
It’s important to note that pain and discomfort don’t always occur with issues that need to be addressed by an oral pathology specialist. That’s why it’s vital that when the above or other signs of oral cancer begin to appear, you should always see a specialist as soon as possible to have these areas examined for early signs of oral cancer and other orally pathological complications. Our team at Las Vegas Oral Surgery is able to address any oral pathology complications that patients may be experiencing, as well as advise how these complications should be addressed and what measures should be taken to avoid these complications developing further in the future.
