Mouth Cancer Action Month is aimed to address the growing concern of significantly increased diagnoses of mouth cancer in the UK. There was a real worry that there was a general lack of awareness when it came down to learning about the risk factors, along with knowing what to look out for. Without being able to recognise early signs and symptoms, diagnosis of mouth cancer was becoming increasingly prominent in the later stages, resulting in more lives lost.
As part of Mouth Cancer Action Month, Lindley Dental are going to turn Wednesday 19th of November blue. This does not mean we will be cursing all day, but donning our blue lipstick. We are holding a drop in session for free mouth cancer checks between 8.30 and 11.30. We hope to raise awareness about the risk factors of disease, as well as what to look out for.
We look forward to seeing you on Blue Wednesday 19th November 8.30-11.30. All welcome.
If in doubt get checked out!
