Men are more than twice as likely as women to develop oral cancer. The latest data shows around 5,300 men are diagnosed with oral cancer every year in the UK compared to around 2,500 women. The data also reveals oral cancer is more often diagnosed in men at a younger age compared with other cancers. Oral cancer is the 11th most common male cancer overall, but among men aged 45 – 59 it is the fourth most common. Oral cancer includes cancers of the mouth, tongue, lips, tonsils and the middle part of the throat (oropharynx).
