MOUTH AND THROAT CANCER ON THE RISE

Mouth cancer kills more people in Ireland than skin melanoma with two people dying every week from it.

Ahead of Mouth Cancer Awareness Day on Wednesday people are being encouraged to get checked.

In particular men over 50 are being reminded to be vigilant as they are one of the high risk groups.

700 cases of mouth, head and neck cancer are detected in Ireland every year.
