Mouth Cancer Action Month is a charity a campaign which aims to address and tackle mouth cancer in the United Kingdom.
This year in the UK, around 8,300 people will be given the life-changing news that they have mouth cancer.
These numbers continue to rise while the disease claims more lives than cervical and testicular cancer combined.
During November River Practice wanted to support the charity and raise awareness so that more people know about mouth cancer by holding an open day and offering free mouth cancer checks to the general public. The oral cancer includes:
- Knowing how to spot mouth cancer early and regularly checking for unusual changes in the mouth.
- Understanding what is likely to cause mouth cancer and reducing your risk.
- Acting quickly when you see something out of the ordinary by visiting your dentist
Scott temple from Pirate FM joined us on the day for a live broadcast and help us raise awareness of oral cancer.
