Free mouth cancer checks at Hythe dentist
1:00pm Monday 28th October 2013 in News
A HAMPSHIRE dentist is offering free mouth cancer checks in a bid to win the battle against the killer disease.
For the third year running, Warterside Dental Practice in Hythe is backing Mouth Cancer Action Month and helping to check for the symptoms of the disease which without early detection could claim 30,000 lives over the next ten years.
Oral cancer kills one person every three hours in the UK because of late detection but if diagnosed at an early stage, the outlook for is generally moderate to good.
So the practice is offering free, no-obligation mouth cancer checks on November 30, for both patients and non-patients, between 9am and noon.
The examination involves a soft tissue check as well as discussing any concerns such as mouth ulcers that haven’t healed within three weeks, red or white patches or other unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth.
