Overview

Biopsy of the tumor tissue is diagnostic of oral cancer. Other diagnostic studies for oral cancer include endoscopy, indirect pharyngoscopy, laryngoscopy, exfoliative cytology, barium swallow, chest x-ray and bone scan.

Biopsy

Endoscopy

Indirect pharyngoscopy and laryngoscopy

Exfoliative cytology

Barium swallow

HPV testing

  • For cancers of the throat, biopsy samples are often tested to see if HPV infection is present.
  • This information can help predict the probable course of the cancer; for people whose cancers are linked to HPV, they tend to do better than those whose cancers are not.

Bone scan

Dental Exam

  • If radiation is part of the treatment plan for oral cancer, a dental exam beforehand by a prosthodontist is usually recommended.[9]
