Dr. Caitriona Begley talks about PRSI check ups and the importance of regular dental checkups to treat dental and health issues before they become serious, particularly regarding Cancer screenings.
They discuss the increased amount of oral cancer in Ireland, and why it is so important to get a dental check-up regularly
180 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed every year in Ireland.
When we talk about oral cancer we are talking about cancer of the lips, the tongue, the floor of the mouth. You should be concerned about red or white patches in your mouth or lumps, bumps or ulcers which have been there for more than 2 or 3 weeks.
If you are PRSI registered you are entitled to a yearly free checkup, which will check you out for oral cancer or any other issues.
