Attending appointments as often as they recommend makes it more likely that any problems will be caught as early as possible, including mouth cancer. #MouthCancerAction #Mouthaware Mouth cancer cases are on the rise, but awareness is dangerously low. It is so important that we are more aware of the changes in our mouths and act on anything unusual by getting checked out by a dentist or doctor. #MouthCancerAction #Mouthaware The earlier a problem is caught, the easier it tends to be to tackle. Mouth cancer is no exception. The smaller the affected area, the better the chances are of a full recovery. So, if in doubt, get checked out! #MouthCancerAction #Mouthaware Long lasting ulcers, red/white patches and unusual lumps and bumps are three common warning signs of mouth cancer. It may be nothing but it’s always better to be safe and get checked than be sorry. #MouthCancerAction #Mouthaware The everyday choices we make can affect our chances of developing mouth cancer. Smoking cigarettes significantly increases your risk of developing the disease. #MouthCancerAction #Mouthaware Drinking alcohol over the recommended weekly limit will increase your chances of getting mouth cancer. Please stick within the recommended guidelines and maintain regular visits to the dentist just in case. #MouthCancerAction #Mouthaware Here is a header image to display on your social media profiles during November: Useful links: About Mouth Cancer Action Month Event ideas Donate to the Mouth Cancer Action Appeal Mouth Cancer Action products Mouth Cancer Action Month is sponsored by Simplyhealth Professionals and supported by Dentists' Provident.
