Mouth Cancer Action Month

1–30th November


Mouth Cancer Action Month is a charity campaign which aims to raise awareness of mouth cancer it reaches around 60 million people each year with messages about the importance of early detection and living a healthy lifestyle. But there is still more work to do.

Around 18 people every day are diagnosed with mouth cancer. Half would leave a mouth ulcer for more than a month before seeking medical advice. One in three are unsure if they are at risk of mouth cancer while more than a third of people do not realise smoking tobacco is linked to the disease.

By learning more about mouth cancer, we can just help lower our risk of developing the disease, but we can also pass our knowledge on to those we love and care for too. By understanding more about how healthy lifestyle choices can increase our chances of staying cancer free, we can also improve the state of our oral health and general wellbeing.
