Mouth Cancer Screening

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.

What are the symptoms of mouth cancer?

The most common symptoms of mouth cancer are:

  • Persistent mouth sores that bleed
  • Unexplained lumps in the mouth or neck
  • Red or white lesions in the mouth
  • Changes in speech
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • A numb sensation
  • Discomfort in the mouth, neck, or ear

What is involved in a mouth cancer screening?

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.

What happens if my dentist detects anything suspicious?

If your dentist finds anything suspicious, they will refer you to a specialist for further testing.
