Did you know?
Mouth cancer can affect anybody but many cases of mouth cancer are directly linked with individual's lifestyle choices and certain risk factors increase the chances of developing mouth cancer.
We all know smoking is bad for your health in so many ways but smoking is the leading cause of mouth cancer.
Excessive alcohol is also linked to cases of mouth cancer and should only be consumed responsibly over the legal age (18).
So what can we do?
To keep us healthy we can make good lifestyle choices, eat a well-balanced diet eating plenty of fruit and veg.
We can check our mouth, lips, tongue and throat regularly looking for any red or white patches, ulcers or any unusual lumps or swellings.
We can attend regular check-ups with your dentist.
