Oral cancer takes lives of more people than testicular and cervical cancer combined. By knowing more about risk factors, living healthier lifestyles and getting proper screening, we can help reduce the risk and lower the number of lives that oral cancer effects.
For the month of November, we are aiming to get more oral cancers diagnosed at an early stage. We encourage everyone to discuss them with their dental professionals.
Do not leave a mouth ulcer unattended for more than three weeks. Do not ignore any unusual lumps or swellings or red and white patches in your mouth.
Early detection could save your life. If you notice any changes in your mouth please speak to a dentist or doctor immediately.
