NOVEMBER IS MOUTH CANCER ACTION MONTH


 

BE MOUTH AWARE

AND CHECK FOR CHANGES IN YOUR MOUTH

Although risk factors (such as smoking and alcohol) are responsible for many mouth cancers, it is a disease that can affect anyone.

That is why it is so important we all know what to look out for.

  • Don’t leave a mouth ulcer unattended for more than three weeks.
  • Don’t ignore any unusual lumps or swellings or red and white patches in your mouth.
  • Regularly check your own mouth, lips, cheeks, head and neck for anything out of the ordinary.

If you notice anything out of the ordinary, don’t hesitate. Book an appointment with a dentist or doctor. Quick action is very often life-saving.
