Cancer is never an easy thing to come to terms with in Epping, or anywhere, and as much research and money is pumped into it, it never seems to go away- just as it seems it is beaten in one part of the body, it rears its ugly head in another part. But one thing is a ‘given’ when it comes to this disease, catch it early, and the more the chance you have of beating it. This applies to oral cancer too, for this is on the increase throughout the country; regular visits to the dentist to discuss any problems you may have, can be diagnosed very quickly nowadays. Most cancers that arise in the mouth can be traced back to poor oral hygiene, bad diet and stress- all of the causes that weaken the immune system and leave the body vulnerable to attack. In the mouth, bad breath, ulcers gum disease and sore throats can indicate something is wrong, which calls for a visit to the dentist. There, you can have blood tests, x-rays, cell analysis and biopsy’s to analyse any problems. If the results come back positive, then by being part of the process, you truly prepare yourself for the fight that is to come your way. Successes in cancer rely on the spirit of the individual’s who are about to undergo the treatment, and the treatments can be quite severe- from physical surgery to radio and chemotherapy. However, before it even gets to this stage, you can inform yourself of the dangers that are out there, avoid the pitfalls and change your life- any dentist will advise you so that you can lead a happy and healthy life.
