Oral, head and neck cancer awareness week is April 12 – 18th.  I have been browsing the web looking for resources to share with my patients in the office and through Twitter and Facebook.  I have found the following websites to be helpful and I wanted to pass them along to other dentists to use in patient education:

WebMD – Contains signs and symptoms of oral cancer

Livestrong – Includes several simple articles on topics such as how to spot the signs of oral cancer, 3 ways to prevent oral cancer and how smoking contributes to oral cancer.

Oral Cancer Foundation

Oral Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week – Includes a map of providers of free cancer screenings and 50 facts about Oral, Head and Neck Cancer.
