Diseases like cancer has only one cure, i.e early detection. Oral cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting human beings. What can be better than detecting it at an early stage so that it can be cured completely!

At our clinic, we use Velscan, which is an artificial intelligence-based tool to detect cancer at a very early stage. With the help of velscan, we can check if there is any kind of abnormality in your oral lesion and if it can be cancerous or not. The earlier the detection,the better the prognosis.

Velscope uses the method of Fluorescence Visualization (FV) in which bright blue light is directed into the mouth to visualise changes and lesions that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

How is the screening for oral cancer done?

Our dentists will look inside your mouth for any kind of red or white lesions. In general, a cancerous lesion is either reddish or whitish. if any such lesion is found, the dentist then palpates it with his fingers to assess the consistency of the lesion. Cancerous lesions have a characteristic consistency and lumps.

After going through the clinical examination of the patient, our dentists then provide a preliminary idea regarding the malignant state of the lesion. For confirmation, at our clinic we use the Velscan , which is a non-invasive procedure, mostly. If required, a small sample of the lesion is taken and given for examination. That procedure is known as a biopsy.

Early detection cancer tool is a blessing in itself. Nothing can be better than to able to detect your disease at the earliest or be sure that you are free from any such ailments.
