Mouth cancer is a malignant growth which
can occur in any part of the mouth, including the tongue,
lips and throat. Mouth cancers have a higher proportion
of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical
cancer or skin melanoma. The mortality rate is just over
50%, despite treatment, with about 1,700 deaths per year
in the UK. This is because of late detection. Visit your
dentist at once if you notice any abnormal problems or
are not sure. Regular dental checkups allow early
detection of abnormalities in the mouth.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation is a registered charity that raises awareness of mouth cancers and proviedes information and support to patients, carers and health professionals.
