Focus on Mouth Cancer
Unfortunately, many signs of mouth cancer may go undetected by some non-specialists.
If you are concerned that you may have mouth cancer, whether you are young or older, a smoker or non-smoker, you must get in touch with us as soon as possible.
Mouth ulcers which do not heal after one week, persistent white or red patches, and lumps in the mouth or neck that do not go away should be examined.
Teeth which have become loose or sockets which do not heal after extractions should be urgently examined.
Our priority will be to establish a diagnosis and treatment for you rapidly because waiting induces anxiety which we will try to avoid as much as possible.
This will involve a biopsy and sometimes several scans before your treatment plan can be ratified.
Professor Andi is internationally recognised as a leader in digital surgical planning and advanced imaging techniques.
We will deploy the latest technology to understand the tumour in detail and plan the most appropriate type of reconstruction.
Achieving the best survival outcomes and quality of life in relation to appearance, being able to eat and swallow requires a multidisciplinary approach.
Professor Andi is proud to lead a team of ENT, maxillofacial and dental surgeons, speech and language therapists, dieticians, hygienists and psychologist who are experienced in looking after head and neck cancer patients.
