Mouth Cancer Awareness Day 2013

There are more than 300 cases of cancer of the mouth (oral cavity and pharynx) reported in Ireland every year. These cancers are more common in men than in women.  However this is changing. The incidence rate of cancer of the mouth in women has increased significantly at a rate of 3% per year since 1994. It mainly affects older people although younger people are being diagnosed now. Early detection greatly improves the prognosis .

Dentists have a key role to play in the early detection of mouth cancer and in the prevention of the disease by identifying those patients who are exposed to risk factors.

On Wednesday September 18th, free mouth cancer examinations will be offered throughout the country. The examination is quick and painless. Please take this opportunity by taking 10 minutes to do something that could save your life!

Oral cancer screening examinations will take place at KMcG Dental Surgery, Jervis Street, Ardee from 9am-12pm on Wednesday 18th September 2013. No appointment is necessary and you do not need to be a patient of the practice to attend. If you would like more information please call our reception team on 041 6853235 or visit www.mouthcancerawareness.ie
