When it comes to cancer, the earlier it is identified, the better the prognosis in most cases. Diagnoses of mouth cancer are on the rise in the UK. That is why we offer all our patient’s mouth cancer screenings as part of their routine dental check-ups.
The most common symptoms of mouth cancer are:
During a mouth cancer screening, your dentist will conduct visual and physical examinations, looking for any signs or symptoms of mouth cancer.
They will check the tongue, lips, inside of the cheeks, roof, and floor of the mouth, the lining of the throat, the head, and the neck for anything unusual.
If your dentist finds anything suspicious, they will refer you to a specialist for further testing.
