Oral Cancer is on the rise. There were over 7,000 new cases confirmed in the last year alone.
By spotting mouth cancer early, we have a much better chance of beating it.
With early diagnosis, the chances of surviving mouth cancer are nine out of ten – those odds are pretty good, and that’s why knowing what to look out for is so important.
Sadly, far too many mouth cancers are not spotted early enough.
So, here are some signs and symptoms to look out for:
We always carry out a mouth cancer screening during appointments, but sometimes, we don’t see people for months, sometimes years. If you can’t get to us, then doing a quick check infront of the mirror at home could save your life. Take a look at the info box below to see how to check yourself for signs of cancer.
If you have any questions or would like to get checked out, please call us on 0121 550 6958.
