Oral Pathology Management
Differential diagnosis of pathology in the maxillofacial region is an important part of the practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Pathology may range for growths, cysts, tumors, vascular lesions, and even cancer.
If indicated, biopsies and/or other tests can be performed to arrive at a definitive diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Early detection and treatment of oral lesions or cancer greatly improve the patient's prognosis. Lesions may be managed medically and/or surgically.
