Most oral cancers can be cured if caught early. Be on the lookout for abnormal growths; white or velvety red patches on the mouth; persistent sores or swelling; repeated bleeding; or a numb or a painful area. You can also reduce your risk by avoiding tobacco and prolonged exposure to the sun; eating a balanced diet; using alcohol in moderation; and practising good oral hygiene. Make an appointment with us at our clinic if you want to learn more about oral cancer prevention and care.
