If you could please take this 5 question survey regarding an app about oral cancer diagnosis, that would be great!
Oral cancer is cancer that develops in the tissues of the mouth or throat. It belongs to a larger group of cancers called head and neck cancers. Most develop in the squamous cells found in your mouth, tongue, and lipsbest oral surgery in leicester.Overall, 60 percent of all people with oral cancer will survive for five years or more. The earlier the stage at diagnosis, the higher the chance of survival after treatment. In fact, the five-year overall survival rate in those with stage 1 and 2 oral cancers is typically 70 to 90 percent.
Does 5 year survival rate mean potentially cured, or does the cancer often return after 5 years or more?
I am new to this and can’t figure out how to start a new topic so I am starting one here. Has anyone out there had trouble with teeth shifting after head and neck cancer surgery and treatments ? After my surgery my bottom teeth have shifted dramatically and gotten very crooked. Had I known this would happen I would have had a retainer made while they were straight in order to prevent it but no one warned me of this possibility. Now because I’ve had so much radiation no dentist or orthodontist I’ve seen thinks they can be fixed.
