Oral Cancer Rise

Reset Decrease Increase
Oral Cancer Rise
Tobacco also Adds to Oral Cancer Rise. Following the Cancer Research study that highlighted alcohol as the main contender in the rise of oral cancers, tobacco has now been highlighted as a dangerous culprit. People that chew tobacco are at higher risk of getting oral cancer as the popularity of chewing tobacco rises, research has suggested.

Tobacco chewing, which is popular with some members of the East London community has led to an \"alarming\" rise in the number of cases of oral cancer in East London.

These figures come in contrast to the picture where rising oral cancer rates have been linked to increased alcohol intake, according to Cancer Research UK

Following a screening programme of 1,300 local residents, one in 15 people were referred to the hospital for further investigation as estimated by Dr Anand
Lalli, a clinical lecturer in oral surgery.

Dr Lalli said: “Along with the rest of the UK, we are seeing an alarming rise in the number of people being diagnosed with oral cancer.

“The rise is being linked to drinking alcohol because of the huge increase in alcohol usage in the UK in recent decades.”

It is now advised regular dental check-ups for people worried about oral cancer, or for those who have not visited the dentist for a long period of time.

Dr Lalli added: “Your dentist is trained to spot the early signs of oral cancer such as ulcers or red or white patches on the gum or tongue. If you have any of these symptoms now you should see your dentist or doctor without delay.”
