Studies show that mouth cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery.

Mouth cancer screening is a short procedure at the dental practice that involves a thorough examination of your whole mouth, including an assessment of any lumps or lesions that you might have. This will highlight any risk factors so we can treat or refer you as quickly as possible.

It is recommended that you come in for a screening on a yearly basis. If you have any sores, lumps or long-term ulcers in your mouth, no matter how small, it is very important that you come in to have it looked at. Late detection of mouth cancers has resulted in a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, with about 2,700 deaths per year in the UK.

Certain activities are connected to an increased risk of developing mouth cancer, including tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, pipes and chewing tobacco.

Because smoking is strongly linked with many forms of cancer and other dental problems, we always encourage our patients to quit smoking.

An excellent source of information is the Mouth Cancer Foundation if you require any further information.

Signs of mouth cancer

Oral cancer can develop at any age but is more common in people aged 40 and above and is also more common in men. The signs of mouth cancer include a painless red or white lesion or a lump in any part of the mouth, tongue or lips, as well as persistent hoarseness.
