WHERE ARE WE WITH REGARD TO MOUTH CANCER IN 2021?

The incidence of mouth cancer in the UK continues increase year on year with detection of the disease at Stage 1 or Sage 2 remaining low despite the introduction of Urgent Suspected Cancer referral pathways.  The reduced access to primary care caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant reduction in referrals with an inevitable increase of patients presenting with advanced disease and poor outcome.  Recognition and appropriate referral of mouth cancer or oral potentially malignant disorders remains an essential aspect of dental care.  This lecture will present an interactive approach to the recognition, recording and referral (three Rs) of a spectrum of mucosal abnormalities, including squamous cell carcinoma, to ensure optimal patient management and the best use of specialist services in the present day healthcare environment.

Learning objectives

Following this presentation delegates will:

  • Have a contemporary understanding of mouth cancer and oral potentially malignant disorders.
  • Gain an appreciation of the key clinical differences between benign and malignant mucosal disease.
  • Have knowledge of the most appropriate use of terminology to record mucosal disorders in clinical records.
  • Be able to use Urgent Suspected Cancer referral pathways appropriately.
