November is mouth cancer awareness month
Anyone can be affected by mouth cancer whether they have their own teeth or not. Most cases of mouth cancer are linked to tobacco and alcohol.
Mouth cancer can appear in different forms and can affect all parts of the mouth, tongue, and lips. It can appear as a painless mouth ulcer that does not heal normally. This can normally be spotted in it’s early stages by your dental team during an examination. If you have a painless ulcer which does not heal within two weeks, please contact us so we can have a look.
