When, in 2007, Keith Hern heard his diagnosis, he decided to set up a website http://www.throatcancersurvivor.co.uk/ and write a book, Bangers & Mash, to share his experience with anyone else going through the same. He also trekked across Iceland in 2009 and raised £7000 for the Royal Marsden Hospital.

And now, a study conducted by a team from Israel’s Institute of Technology has found that this beverage can also help fight mouth cancer as it contains antioxidants that destroy a number of compounds in the mouth that can lead to this life-threatening disease. Green tea has many health benefits, so we should start drinking it every day from now on.  

It is an important step forward that will benefit the health of many boys as two strains of HPV virus are increasingly recognised as causes of mouth cancer. Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Andre Corriveau, estimates that extending HPV coverage to boys would cost between $5 million and $8 million.

Everyone at the Mouth Cancer Foundation is getting excited about the 7th annual Mouth Cancer 10km Awareness Walk. Preparations are well underway to announce details of our next walk which we are hoping to make the biggest walk yet. Get ready to join us to raise awareness of  mouth cancer and generate the much needed funds.

Today we’ve been talking a lot about a portable, miniature microscope developed by a team of researchers from the University of Texas in Austin, USA.  They have designed a probe which is about 20 cm long and 1 cm wide at its tip in the hope of reducing the time taken to detect mouth cancer.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation has always encouraged people to give up gutkha. And now, for the first time, research in the US has identified a specific oral cancer-causing chemical used in smokeless tobacco products.

Cancer patients have many concerns and often want to talk to someone to share their experiences. We would like to build a network of Patient Representatives who are willing to spare a few hours, as required, to talk, email or visit patients in their homes. Contact us for more information.
