This year in the UK, around 8,300 people will be given the life-changing news that they have mouth cancer.
These numbers continue to rise while the disease claims more lives than cervical and testicular cancer combined.
Mouth Cancer Action Month is a charity a campaign which aims to address and tackle mouth cancer in the United Kingdom.
During November, along with Oral Health Foundation and other dental professionals we want to raise awareness about mouth cancer. This includes:
- Knowing how to spot mouth cancer early and regularly checking for unusual changes in the mouth.
- Understanding what is likely to cause mouth cancer and reducing your risk.
- Acting quickly when you see something out of the ordinary by visiting your dentist.
