The cases of mouth cancer are rising every year. It is believed that there are more than 1,700 deaths every year in the United Kingdom due to this condition, but the disease can be successfully treated if spotted early.
Signs of mouth cancer include:
A dentist is equipped with the knowledge and experience to spot mouth cancer as it develops. This is why it is important to visit the dentist every 6 months for a check-up, before any potential cancer has the chance to take hold.
Cutting out certain habits like smoking or heavy drinking can also help prevent the development of mouth cancer.
For more information on mouth cancer, or oral cancer as it is also known, patients can visit the Mouth Cancer Foundation website. The group helps to raise awareness of the condition and provides support for carers, patients and health professionals.
