It is everyone’s worst fear to be diagnosed with oral cancer: it will knock the wind out of you at first, but if you are going to triumph over this adversity, you are going to have to muster every drop of strength in your body and mind. Even today, it still bamboozles doctors why it will happen to one person and not another: it is thought that some people are born with the cancer gene. However, if you are knocking back, endless booze and fags, and are eating poorly and unfit, it certainly isn’t going to help your cause, and if after a few weeks, something is troubling you still, like a sore throat or stubborn ulcers in your mouth that just won’t go away, you could have a problem. Tests will state whether you have the disease or not, but if you have, you may well be in for some pretty hardcore operations, depending how advanced the cancer has got, and herein lies your biggest clue of all of beating it: catch this disease in its infancy and you have an excellent chance of smashing it- but it will always be hard and you will always have it in the back of your mind for a long while after you get the all clear.
