Mouth Cancer Action Month is the UK’s biggest charity campaign for mouth cancer awareness.
Taking place throughout November, thousands of amazing people go out into their communities to raise awareness of mouth cancer and share the important message of being mouth aware.
During Mouth Cancer Action Month we are promoting the message ‘if in doubt, get checked out’. We encourage everybody to be mouth aware and pay close attention to what’s going on inside the mouth.
Most importantly, if you notice anything out of the ordinary, it is essential that you tell your dentist or doctor immediately.
A mouth cancer check can be done at home and it takes less than one minute.
It is a good idea to get into the habit of regularly checking yourself for the early signs of mouth cancer, especially in the time between dental visits. Take the time to perform a self-check for mouth cancer every month.
