Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the world, according to the NHS.

In light of the “Covid-19” pandemic and the fear of going to health care centers, it is more important than ever to know the signs of oral cancer, and the Head and Neck Cancer Foundation HNCF has created a simple 60-second test that can save your life by detecting cancer early .

1. Look at your face

Michelle Vickers, executive director of HNCF, said early diagnosis can “significantly improve” survival rates. She explained that the first place to start is to look at your face, and look for any swelling that is not usually present.

“Check your skin. Do you have any moles that have become larger, start to itch or bleed? Do not forget to turn your head from side to side, as this stretches the skin over the muscles, which makes the lumps easier to see,” said Michael.

2. Feel your neck

The best way to do this, said Michelle, is to run the fingers under the jaw and feel along the large muscle on either side of the neck with your fingers.

It revealed that we need to check for any lumps or swollen areas.

3. Examine the mouth

The next step can be taken when brushing your teeth, Michelle said: “Feel your lips from the inside and along the gum line. You need to be examined for any sores, changes in texture, lumps or bumps that need to be examined by a medical professional.”

4. Feel your cheeks

To check your cheeks, Michelle said, you should feel the inside and the outside with your fingers. And “both sides should feel the same.”

“You are looking for red or white spots, lumps or sores,” she added.

5. Head tilt

This next step should be done once a week.

While looking in the mirror, Michelle said, you should tilt your head back and open your mouth to the other, to look for sores and any changes in color and texture.

And if you do this once a week, you will discover if anything changes or looks unusual.

The sides of the tongue should also be carefully examined and the bottom of the mouth for any abnormalities, as these are the areas of the mouth that are most at risk.

The HNCF states that abnormalities can include red or white patches, lumps or numb spots.
