Facing up to Oral Cancer in London SE1

05 / 06 / 2011

If you have any issue crop up in the body in London SE1, like anything, if the problem is identified in its infancy, there is a fantastic chance it can be treated and cured; so it is with oral cancer. Though we are still struggling to nail this disease, better understanding of exactly how it starts and what causes it have been realised. Mostly, most dentists will concur that a high percentage of people suffering from the problem normally smoke, abuse alcohol, have a bad diet and poor oral hygiene- in all, a poor lifestyle and cancer will thrive on this, attacking the inside of the cheeks, the roof and floor of the mouth, gums and tongue. These fleshy areas are at further risk too from constant irritations in the much, from rough teeth, dentures and even fillings. It manifests itself through constant ulcers, sore throats, chewing and swallowing pains and bad tastes in the mouth and this is the time to get a check-up. Some simple tests at the dentist will soon identify if you have a problems; if so then you are in for some pretty testing periods of chemo, radio therapy or even physical surgery to beat the disease. But it’s how you approach these periods that will give you the optimum chance of removing the cancerous cells. Everything from diet to oral hygiene must be changed to give you a fighting chance, most of all, your attitude. You may require the help of a support group afterwards too, to help you through the psychological trauma, but success rates are up, so there’s every chance that you can beat this disease.
