Our highly trained team are able to screen for mouth cancer signs and symptoms during your regular check-ups here with us.

Why do we perform mouth cancer screenings?

We carry out mouth cancer screenings as part of our preventive care here at The Corner House Dental Practice. Like all cancers, mouth cancer is most treatable when caught and diagnosed early, and as your dentist, we are the most suitably placed for spotting and noticing any changes or abnormalities in the mouth.

What happens during a mouth cancer screening?

We carry out your mouth cancer screening during your usual check-up here at the practice. We’ll check for any changes and abnormalities in the mouth, focusing in particular on any growths that might be present, as well as red or white patches.


Can I arrange for a mouth cancer screening outside of my usual routine check-up?

Yes, of course. While we always perform these screenings during regular examinations, if you have noticed anything abnormal or are worried about anything, then you can call our reception team and book a mouth cancer screening with us as soon as possible.

What happens if you find anything?

If we notice anything during a screening that causes us concern, we’ll either ask you back for a follow-up and further tests or refer you to a specialist.

Am I at risk of mouth cancer?

There are a few factors that might make you more at risk of mouth cancer than others. These include being – or having been – a smoker, drinking spirits in large amounts, having had the HPV virus, and regular exposure to the sun (without SPF protection).
