Today is World Cancer Day!  An international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. World Cancer Day is led by the Union for International Cancer Control to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration.

At the Mouth Cancer Foundation, we would encourage everyone to use today to carry out a simple mouth cancer self-examination at home.

For any dental practices that would like to carry our free leaflets illustrating the self-check for mouth cancer, simply email
