A diagnostic procedure in which oral cells are covered with a blue dye is known as a toluidine blue stain. Areas that are darker are more likely to be or become cancerous.

With fluorescence staining, lesions in the mouth are inspected under a certain type of light after the patient has rinsed with a fluorescent mouthwash; normal tissue can be distinguished from cancerous tissue using this test.

Preventive care involves collecting cells from the lips and/or oral cavity with a piece of cotton, a brush, or small wooden stick. Finally, a brush biopsy procedure involves removing cells with a brush designed to collect cells from a lesion; again, cells are viewed under a microscope to find out if they are cancerous.
