Shining a Light on Paediatric Oral Cancer Awareness
This month, we address a topic that demands our attention - Paediatric Oral Cancer Awareness. While oral cancer is often associated with adults, it can affect children as well. Understanding the risk factors, signs, and importance of early detection is vital for safeguarding the well-being of our young patients.
Risk factors for oral cancer in children include genetics, certain medical conditions, and exposure to certain chemicals.
Symptoms may include unexplained lumps, white or red patches, persistent sores, difficulty swallowing, or voice changes.
Early detection is critical for successful treatment and preserving a child's quality of life.
We hope this blog post has shed light on the importance of paediatric oral cancer awareness. By working together, we can ensure that your child receives the attention and care they need to overcome this potentially life-altering condition.
