Mouth Cancer

Studies show that oral cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. At Beckenham Dental Care we offer mouth cancer screening, a thorough examination that will highlight any risk factors so we can treat or refer you as quickly as possible.

We recommend that you see us 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.

An excellent source of information is the Mouth Cancer Foundation if you require any further information.

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
