BE MOUTHAWARE!

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

The aim of mouth cancer action month is to create a more mouthaware nation.

You can all play a big part in helping us achieve our goal by sharing a very clear and simple phrase – ‘if in doubt, get checked out.’ We want everybody to pay close attention to what’s going on inside their mouth and take urgent action if they spot any unusual or unexplained changes. Mouth cancer can strike in a number of places, including the lips, tongue, gums and cheek. Given that early detection is so crucial for survival, it’s essential that we create awareness of the main warning signs to look out for are.

Three signs and symptoms not to ignore are:

• Ulcers that do not heal within three weeks.

• Red and white patches in the mouth.

• Unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth or head and neck area.

During November’s campaign, we will be encouraging everybody to get into the habit of checking their mouth for signs of cancer. If any of these common symptoms are spotted, a dentist or doctor should be seen immediately.

Remember the phrase, "if in doubt, get it checked out"
