Last year over 8,300 people were diagnosed with mouth cancer. A figure, which unfortunately continues to grow at an alarming rate. The lifetime risk is 1 in 75 for men and 1 in 150 for women.

At Surbiton Dental, mouth cancer screening is undertaken as part of every comprehensive dental examination. We are trained to detect signs and abnormalities associated with mouth cancer. If we have any concern, you will be referred to a specialist.

Early diagnosis is vital for the prognosis of mouth cancer. If you have noticed anything unusual in and around the head and neck area, please don’t ignore it.

What are the symptoms of mouth cancer?

Below are some of the signs and symptoms of mouth cancer; however, it is important to be aware that you may not notice any symptoms at all:

  • A mouth ulcer that doesn’t heal within 3 weeks
  • Red or white patches in your mouth
  • A lump or swelling inside your mouth, head or neck
  • Consistent mouth sores that bleed
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing or persistent ‘hoarseness’

Am I at risk for mouth cancer?

By understanding your risk of mouth cancer, we will be able to discuss lifestyle changes and actions you can take to protect your health:

  • Typically affects older adults aged 50-74
  • More common in men
  • Tobacco and alcohol consumption (combined heavy consumption can increase your risk of mouth cancer by 30 times)
  • Family history oral human papillomavirus (HPV) infections
