Oral cancer is on the increase, so it is more important than ever to catch this disease as early as possible.
Our dentists are trained to spot concerning signs or symptoms that could indicate mouth cancer. This form of cancer causes tumours to grow in the mouth, lips or on the tongue.
While the exact cause of mouth cancer is unknown, smoking and heavy drinking are known risk factors.
Signs and symptoms of mouth cancer can vary greatly – from lumps developing in the mouth, red or white patches, sores that will not heal and areas of numbness. It is important to report any unusual symptoms to your dentist or GP.
We screen for mouth cancer at our routine dental check-ups and during examinations. That’s why regular appointments with our dentists and hygienists are so important for all aspects of your health.
