how does X-ray compare with incisional biopsy for detecting oral cancer (primarily tongue area) ? Does it differ what stage the cancer is ? alternatives?

  • I don't know but I wish I was given a biopsy instead of X Ray 7 years ago when I had my first symptoms and the doctors misdiagnosed me. A lot of old wiser people live by the belief that you have to tell the doctors what is wrong with you these days. Tell the doctors you would like a biopsy if possible

Presence of a new mass or calcium deposits presents at a previous site of surgery.Regards,..
