Mouth Cancer Action Month

November is Mouth Cancer Action Month, raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of mouth cancer. The sooner mouth cancer is detected the much better chance there is of beating it.

The most common symptoms are:

  • sore mouth ulcers that do not heal within several weeks
  • unexplained persistent lumps in the mouth that do not go away
  • Unexplained persistent lumps in the lymph glands in the neck that do not go away

Many of these can be caused by less serious conditions however, it is strongly recommended that you see your GP or dentist if any of these last longer than 3 weeks.
