HAS THAT ANNOYING PAIN IN YOUR EARS BEEN AROUND LONGER THAN YOU CAN REMEMBER?

One of the lesser known side effects of tongue cancer is in fact ear ache.  Many patients, pre-treatment report having pain in their ears. It is only since recovering from the disease and talking to other patients that they can draw upon the connection. So, what more can be done?

Here at the Mouth Cancer Foundation, we are asking you to stay alert for any changes within your mouth, around the areas of the neck (lumps and bumps can also be a warning sign), and any signs of a persisting ear ache. If you find any symptoms that have been there for longer than 3 weeks we strongly advise you see a GP or book into your local dentist.
