Mouth Cancer Action Month – Take action now, don’t delay!

We are committed to raising awareness of Mouth cancer. Early detection is vital, so once again we are participating in November Mouth Cancer Action Month.

Mouth cancer is one of the few cancers that continues to increase in incidence. The number of people in the UK diagnosed with this disease has increased by more than a third over the last decade, its poor five-year survival rate makes it a cause for concern. Mouth cancer has a devastating effect on a person’s life, it impacts areas many of us take for granted, such as our ability to eat, drink or even speak. It also makes a huge psychological and emotional impact by causing problems in communication, low self-esteem, social isolation and affects the family and friends of sufferers.

If you or someone you know is ever worried about mouth cancer please just ask for a free screening appointment at St.James Dental as soon as possible.

This service is available free, all year round not just for November!
