Mouth Cancer Action Month
Mouth Cancer Action Month 2018
Mouth cancer cases have increased by one third in the last decade. 21 people every day are diagnosed with mouth cancer. 1 in 2 people are unsure if they are risk.
At Eynsham Dental Care we do a thorough screening for oral cancer for all our regular patients at each examination appointment. Professional screening is critical to help pick up early signs of oral cancer, we can see areas of your mouth you cannot. To help determine your risk of disease will also ask about alcohol and smoking habits and offer preventative advice.
During November we are offering a free oral cancer screening service. Please contact our reception team on 01865880047
Be Mouth Aware. 3 Signs not to ignore are:
Mouth ulcers that do not heal in three weeks
Red and white patches in the mouth
