The oral cavity is made up of the lips, the lining of the lips and cheeks, the teeth, the floor of the mouth under the tongue, the front two thirds of the tongue, the roof of the mouth (hard and soft palate), the gums and the small area behind the wisdom teeth.
Oral cancer is on the increase and can affect any or all of these areas.
Often reassurance is all that is required but if necessary rapid hospital referrals can be made via our surgery. If you have any worries do not hesitate to contact the practice for an assessment.
