MOUTH CANCER SCREENING

Oral cancer is on the rise, so it is vital to catch this disease as early as possible.

Our dentists are trained to spot worrying symptoms that could indicate mouth cancer. This form of cancer causes tumours to grow in the mouth or on the lips or tongue.

The exact cause of mouth cancer is unknown but smoking and heavy drinking are known risk factors.

Signs of mouth cancer can vary greatly – from lumps in the mouth to red or white patches, intractable sores and numb areas. 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 vital for all aspects of your health.
