We like to get hugs, and recently we got a hug from a husband and wife, when we detected a tumor on the woman’s tongue  that she had not known about.   She was a new patient of ClevelandSmiles, and had seen a number of physicians and dentists who were unable to diagnose her problem, being focused on a number of other oral issues that she had.  As you know, the oral cancer exam is part of our patient examination during both the new patient exam and regular dental check-ups.  We are happy to report that she is being treated for this problem, and her outlook seems good.  If you have any lesion or growth that concerns you, please let our dental staff know!!!
