Oral cancer is one disease that people don’t talk much about. However, did you know that is responsible for one death every hour, 24 hours per day in America? The other thing to note is that this number has not changed over the years, and this is because oral cancer is typically not diagnosed until its later stages, which leaves for a poor prognosis.
