Young, old, smoke, drink alcohol - more than 6,500 people will be diagnosed with mouth cancer this year in the UK. Without early detection half will die.


Self-examination is a simple, potentionally life saving process. When brushing your teeth, look out for any changes in your mouth - any red or white patches, unusual lumps or swelling or ulcers which do not heal within 3 weeks.


Know the risk factors and regularly visit your dentist to ensure you are checked for signs of mouth cancer.

If mouth cancer is spotted early, the chances of a complete cure are good. The smaller the area or ulcer the better to the chances of a cure. If in any doubt, get it checked out by your dentist.
