Mouth Cancer Action Month at The Courtyard Clinic

Unfortunately, mouth cancer often presents with no symptoms to the patient. This is why it is vital to examine your own mouth on a regular basis and get regular checkups from a dentist who will be trained to spot early signs of the disease. This is especially important if you or a loved one is a heavy smoker or drinker of alcohol
Common symptoms include; long-standing non-healing ulcers, red white patches on the tongue, gums, floor of the mouth or lips. Unusual swellings or lumps in the mouth are often the first warning signs. Less common symptoms include pain in chewing or swallowing, a sore throat that won’t go away over a long period of time (over 6 weeks), thickening of the cheek lining and unusual pain, bleeding or numbness in the mouth.
Early Detection Saves Lives… the 5-year survival rate of mouth cancer patients is 50% BUT with early diagnosis, patients have a 90% chance of survival. So if you, or anyone you know of, has any of these symptoms or questions then please call Alison on 01932 582 949 to book you free Oral Health Screening throughout October and November 2013.
