Oral cancer is now linked to HPV and has 3 times as many victims as cervical cancer. According to The Oral Cancer Foundation, someone dies from oral cancer every hour of every day in the United States alone. This cancer, found in the mouth, lips or throat, is often highly curable if diagnosed and treated early. Unfortunately, in its early stages, oral cancer can go unnoticed as some symptoms of oral cancer can be invisible to the naked eye.

FDA approved, the VELscope is non-invasive and uses a bright red light to emphasize any changes in the mouth that are not normally visible, enhancing our ability to identify suspicious areas.
