Have you checked yourself for mouth cancer this month?
Our never-ending drive is to encourage everyone to Bite Back at Mouth Cancer and carry out a simple self, head and neck cancer check at home, ideally once a month.
Bite Back at Mouth Cancer shows members of the public what to look for and how to seek help if they find something out of the ordinary. They will become familiar with the signs and symptoms to look out for and learn to act sooner.
The check takes less than two minutes. To carry out the mouth test, all you need is a mirror, good light source and clean fingers. It is that simple. At each step you are inspecting and feeling for any lumps, red or white patches, changes in colour or texture, lingering ulcers or anything unusual.
