Event Description

Over 700 cases of mouth, head and neck cancers are diagnosed in Ireland every year.

We are asking for your support on Mouth Cancer Awareness Day on Wednesday September 19.

Mouth Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Ireland is a partnership involving the Dublin Dental University Hospital, Cork University Dental School and Hospital, Irish Dental Association, Dental Health Foundation, National Cancer Control Programme, Irish Cancer Society and Cancer survivors.

Key messages:
1. Early detection of mouth, head and neck cancer improves treatment and outcomes.
2. Smoking, drinking alcohol and HPV infection all increase the risk of developing mouth cancer.
3. Protect your mouth and body by adopting good oral hygiene habits, eating a healthy diet, which is low in sugar and high in fruits and vegetables, quitting tobacco use and avoiding alcohol for cancer prevention.
