Dealing with Oral Cancer in London SE1

19 / 03 / 2011

Through all the advertising and advice that we are given to keep ourselves healthy in London’s Se1, we are still drawn to the evils that can have serious health implications, and especially to our mouths, as what is put into the body starts here first. Smoking, excessive drinking, poor oral hygiene and poor diet can expose our mouths to all manner of dental problems, the worst case scenario being oral cancer. Treatments to cancer and recovery to the treatment of it, have improved dramatically in recent years, but as good as our understanding of the disease has grown, it hasn’t gone away. Stress, a poor immune system and exposure to UV light have all been linked to the problem, but because we all have our own unique DNA constitution, it makes it difficult to identify why oral cancer can affect one person badly and another, not at all. Of course bad oral hygiene will promote the disease if it’s around another reason why regular dental visits are of the utmost importance, especially if your suffer from problems such as bad breath, repetitive ulcers, aches in the neck, jaw, ears and head, or if you have trouble swallowing, for these are the more common, early signs of oral cancer. But if it’s caught early, the higher the success rate in the treatment and this success also depends on the level of ‘fight’ you are prepared to put in, by getting actively involved and prepare yourself with procedures that you are about to undergo such as chemo or physical surgery. Remember that oral cancer can be beaten as long as you are prepared for a scrap.
