Chemotherapy and radiation therapy can cause sores in the mouth and throat as well as dryness, irritation or bleeding. This can be very frustrating resulting in difficulties eating, chewing or swallowing causing discomfort. It can result in you avoiding eating and drinking because the pain in your mouth is so severe you find it hard to swallow.

Good oral hygiene is extremely important. Your teeth, gums and inside of the mouth need TLC so start early before you have symptoms.

We have included in our Kit for Cancer case an Oral 7 Moisturising Toothpaste, Oral 7 Moisturising Mouthwash and a soft toothbrush because we know how important it is to keep your mouth clean and healthy to help prevent infection.

Inform your medical team immediately if your mouth or gums are really sore. You may require further medications.
