November 2nd, 2016

Mouth Cancer Action Month is a campaign which aims to the get more mouth cancers diagnosed at an early stage by raising awareness of the risk factors and signs and symptoms of mouth cancer while encouraging people to discuss them with their dental professional.

Mouth cancer has one of the UK’s fastest increasing incidence rates. The number of people diagnosed with the disease has increased by almost 40% in the last decade alone. While many cases are linked to lifestyle choices – smoking, alcohol, poor diet and sexual activity – it is important to remember that mouth cancer can affect anybody.

It is important that everyone checks regularly for any changes in their mouth. If any of these are spotted, a dentist or doctor should be seen immediately
