Mouth Cancer Action Month 2015

Get involved with Mouth Cancer Action Month 2015 and our exciting Blue Lip Selfie campaign to help raise awareness of mouth cancer!

Mouth cancer doesn’t discriminate and can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender or lifestyle. Recognising the symptoms early and visiting a dentist regularly can save lives. Mouth cancer can have many different symptoms including:

  • A mouth ulcer that doesn't heal within three weeks
  • Red or white patches in the mouth or throat
  • Unusual lumps or swellings
  • Pain or difficulty swallowing
  • Teeth that become loose for no obvious reason
  • Bleeding or numbness within the mouth
  • Changes in the voice
  • Blue Lip Selfie logo

    Recognising the symptoms early and visiting a dentist regularly can save lives


    We are the main sponsor of Mouth Cancer Action Month 2015, which aims to raise awareness of mouth cancer and make a difference by saving thousands of lives through early detection and prevention. The disease has grown by a third in the last decade and remains one of very few cancers which are predicted to increase further in the coming years*, making it more important than ever to raise awareness of this disease and help to save lives through early detection and prevention. You can find out more about mouth cancer by visiting www.denplan.co.uk/mouthcancer
