VELscope and Oral Cancer

Come to our office and experience the leading newest form of oral cancer detection. This tool uses a blue spectrum light and causes the mouth to fluoresce when something abnormal is detected.

A recent study at the University of Washington has provided insights into VELscope’s potential. A number of mucosal abnormalitlies were detected when using the VELscope during a routine exam. These abnormalities included:    -Viral, fungal and bacterial infections

–         Inflammation from a variety of causes

–         Squamous papillomas (benign tumors, common in HPV patients)

–         Salivary gland tumours.

In Canada, oral cancer is the 13th most common cancer. Oral cancer can be successfully treated if it is caught at an early stage.
