Mouth Cancer Action Month

Brightside Team Members’ Blue Lip Selfie To Promote Awareness of Mouth Cancer

Mouth Cancer Action month takes place in November and has been an event organised by the Oral Health Foundation since 2000. The purpose is to raise the awareness of mouth cancer and to be “mouthaware”

Last year over 8000 people were diagnosed with mouth cancer in the UK. The chances of beating mouth cancer are greatly increased if it is spotted early and treated accordingly. With early diagnosis, the odds of survival are 9 out of 10. However, it’s often detected at a later stage.
