Mouth cancer does not have to be life-threatening if detected early.

At Woodbury Park Dental Surgery, we offer mouth cancer screening as part of our preventive dental program.

What is mouth cancer?

Mouth cancer, also called oral cancer, is a cancerous tumour that develops somewhere in your mouth. The tumour can start in the lips, inside the cheeks, gums, roof and floor of your mouth, or in the lining of your throat.
By detecting and treating it early, you help prevent the cancer from spreading to other parts of your body.

Are there symptoms you can recognise?

Oral cancer usually starts with small bumps or lumps inside your mouth. Sometimes you may experience persistent mouth sores or unexplained bleeding in your mouth.

Other signs of mouth cancer include difficulty in swallowing, numbness, red or white spots inside your mouth, and changes in your vocal tones.

When should I see a dentist?

If you experience any symptoms related to mouth cancer, you should make an appointment to be screened immediately.

If no symptoms are present, it is a good idea to see your dentist regularly for a check-up since early detection is critical.

If you suspect you may have mouth cancer, or you have not kept up with your prescribed routine dental check-up appointments, book your examination appointment online or call us on 018 9252 2297  your dental exam.
