Earlier this year I spotted a cancerous growth on the side of a patient’s tongue. Confidentiality means that I can say little about it in a public domain but this patient did not fit the normal pro
file of a smoker/drinker in his late middle years. Fortunately my patient’s surgeon has called me to say ‘We could not have caught this earlier and I feel that we can talk in terms of cure rather than treatment. You have a very lucky patient’.

Well I guess my patient feels far from lucky but at least I did the right thing at the right time and referred to the right surgeon.

Rest assured that all patients attending SHDP are checked for oral cancer and are told the result.
