Biopsy – Cancer Screening and Examination in St. Albert
Dr. Lon Riemer is your St. Albert dentist, focusing on family dentistry, pediatric dentist and much more.
At least once per year at your dental examination, Dr. Riemer will perform an oral cancer screening, looking for any abnormalities. Small lumps and bumps on the soft tissue in the mouth are fairly commonly seen. The tip of the tongue or the inside of the lip are common spots due to accidental biting. Usually, these areas are quite unlikely to be cancerous, but any such abnormalities are best to be removed and investigated. In most cases, this is quite a simple procedure and is covered by Alberta Health Care.
