Disease Detection

Over 34, 000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer resulting in 8,000 deaths, in each year alone. Dr. Fong is highly skilled when it comes to detecting diseases such as oral cancer, as the signs of this devastating disease typically go unnoticed and are not easily detected. If Dr. Fong discovers something suspicious in an area of the mouth, face, neck or jaw that may have an underlying problem, a biopsy may be preformed to further diagnose a possible condition. Oral surgery is commonly used to treat oral cancer and may be used as a combination treatment with radiation therapy.
