Free mouth cancer screening in Evesham

by Evesham Dental, on 31st October 2014 | 0 comments

November is Mouth Cancer Action Month and we would like to remind you that Evesham dentists at Evesham Dental Health Team on Broadway Road offer free mouth cancer examinations for guest patients all year round to help our community.

Mouth cancer is diagnosed in 6,750 people annually in the UK and killsmore than 2,000 people.Better awareness and prompt detection saves lives, with early diagnosis improving survival chances to more than 90 per cent.

Our patients from across Evesham, Broadway, Cheltenham, Chipping Campden, Pershore, Worcester, Stratford, Winchcombe, Bidford and Alcester already have regular examinations with their dentist to ensure they are professionally screened using our advanced technology for the signs of mouth cancer.

But many people do not, so we would like your help to spread the word among your friends, family and colleagues that they can visit us any time for a free mouth cancer check using our VELscope machine that can detect cases of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions that might be invisible to the naked eye.

Remember to never ignore:

* Ulcers that do not heal within three weeks

* Red and white patches in the mouth

* Unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth

If in doubt, pleased get checked out – call Evesham Dental Health Team on 01386 422 833 to book.

 Our whole team recently attended a Mouth Cancer Awareness charity fund raising walk and awareness seminar at Cheltenham Racecourse and our team photo was featured in the Gloucestershire Echo.

Two hundred people including dentists, hygienists, dental nurses, cancer survivors and ex-Bond girl Fiona Fullerton joined the event in aid of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, which raised £3,000 to help fight mouth cancer.

To find out more, please call our friendly team or visit www.mouthcancerfoundation.org and www.mouthcancer.org
