Today is the first day of thirty for Mouth Cancer Action Month 2018, with the Oral Health Foundation and Simplyhealth professionals publishing a very detailed and comprehensive report highlighting key challenges and recommendations for the future.

The State of Mouth Cancer UK Report 2018/2019 covers survival rates, where the disease is most likely to appear, as well as trends, challenges, and recommendations for the future.

The Oral Health Foundation believe these recommendations will have a significant impact on the landscape of Mouth Cancer in the years to come.

Know what to look for:

Mouth cancer can strike in a number of places, including the lips, tongue, gums, and cheek.

  • Look out for mouth ulcers which do not heal in three weeks.
  • Red and white patches in the mouth.
  • Unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth or head and neck area.
  • If you notice any unusual changes it is essential that you tell your dentist or doctor immediately.
