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.
