Mouth cancer can affect any part of the mouth, such as the tongue and lips. The malignant growth can also affect the throat. There is a high mortality rate for people affected by mouth cancer, and a higher rate than for people with breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin cancer. Even with treatment, 50% of people with mouth cancer will have an illness that is terminal. Approximately 1,700 people die of mouth cancer in the UK each year, due to late detection. If aware of an abnormal problem, or thinking that there night be, you should visit your dentist immediately. Regular visits to your local dentist can help with early detection of any problem.
