Mouth Cancer Action Month may be over for this year but that doesn’t mean you should stop being aware!
In the UK more than 8,300 people were diagnosed with mouth cancer in 2017. Sadly the number of people being diagnosed with mouth cancer has grown by a third in the last decade.
The idea behind the campaign is to make everyone aware of the health of their mouth and look out for the signs and symptoms associated with mouth cancer as it can affect anyone!
The following points should be noted:
If you do notice anything then book an appointment with your dentist or doctor as soon as possible. Quick action is very often life saving.
