Hello and welcome to a brand-new issue of Word of Mouth – the Oral Health Foundation’s digital magazine. This edition is dedicated to our annual November campaign — Mouth Cancer Action Month.
Throughout November, we have received an enormous amount of support from both health professionals and the general public, so I’m taking this opportunity to thank you for that!
Despite all the support and information provided, the new research shows that the cases have risen in the last year. That is why this issue of Word of Mouth begins with the article showcasing the effect the disease has on people.
Nevertheless, throughout this edition, we shine a light on the main risk factors, key warning signs, and other vital information about the disease. And to give you a glimpse into what it’s like to live with mouth cancer, we present to you Robert and Charlotte — mouth cancer survivors who have kindly agreed to share their experience with us.
Sounds interesting yet? If so, you will also be delighted to get a chance and discover the mystery of a mouth cancer research facility one of our colleagues has visited and agreed to showcase her time inside.
I won’t take any more of your time now, we hope you enjoy this latest issue of the magazine!
