Glow stick test helps screen for oral cancer
from KENS 5
Dentists have a new tool called Vizilite that helps detect oral cancer. It's a painless screening that takes about five minutes in the dental office. Harvey Haufler, 70, of San Antonio is diligent about seeing the dentist. Four years ago, a doctor took a biopsy from the inside of his mouth and Haufler got a diagnosis he never expected: oral cancer. "He sent it off to the lab and called three days later and said that it was malignant," Haufler remembered.
