Mouth Cancer Screening

General Care » Mouth Cancer Screening

Studies show that mouth cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. Mouth cancer screening is a short procedure at the dental practice that involves a thorough examination of your whole mouth. This will highlight any risk factors so we can treat or refer you as quickly as possible.

It is recommended that you come in for a screening on a yearly basis. If you have any sores, lumps or long-term ulcers in your mouth, no matter how small, it is very important that you come in to have it looked at.

Late detection of mouth cancers has resulted in a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, with about 2,700 deaths per year in the UK.

Nishan SM I lived in the UK for 2 years and initially planned to go back to my home country for dental treatment. However, when I first came to BCD, I was extremely satisfied with the high quality of care, approach to patients and excellent customer service, so kept coming back here. Thank you Dr Dixit for all your help.
