Healthy Smiles » Mouth Cancer Screening
Studies show that oral cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. At St Paul’s Square Dental Practice we offer mouth cancer screening to all our patients, which involved a thorough examination that will highlight any risk factors so we can treat or refer you as quickly as possible. Having regular screens will give you peace of mind that your mouth is in tip top shape.
We recommend that you see our team immediately if you are concerned about of any growth, lump or long-term ulcers, no matter how small, you might have in your mouth, tongue, lips, throat and upper neck areas. Late detection of mouth cancers have resulted in a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, with about 1,700 deaths per year in the UK.
Because smoking is strongly linked with many forms of cancer and other dental problems, we always encourage our patients to quit smoking. This website offers valuable advice Go Smoke Free.
