Oral Oncology

Oral Oncology

Oral oncology is the study of cancers that attack the mouth. There are several types of oral cancers and tumours. The treatments for oral cancers and tumours depend on the area of the mouth affected, and the stage. Overall health is also an integral part of the treatment process, as having certain medical conditions might react negatively to the treatment if not assessed accurately.

Based on what your type of cancer is, you may be given a single treatment, or you might need a combination of oral cancer treatments. Treatment options include surgery for tumours, radiation and chemotherapy. Your doctor will perform all the required tests and assessments that need to be done before recommending you any procedures to cure the cancer.
