WITTON Street Dental Practice are offering free appointments during November for oral cancer screening.

November is mouth cancer awareness month and last year around 7,800 people were diagnosed with mouth cancer.

This number has grown by around a third in the last decade and remains one of the few forms of cancer which is predicted to increase further in the coming years.

Early signs are mouth ulcers that do not heal within three weeks, red or white patches and any unusual lumps or swelling.

To book an appointment call the practice on 01606 44588.
