Drinking just one glass of wine or one pint of beer a night can significantly raise your chances of getting mouth cancer, according to experts. There are more than 700 cases of Mouth, Head and Neck Cancer diagnosed every year, with that figure only looking set to grow.

On this Mouth, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Day we spoke to throat cancer survivor Elijah Sewell and Dr Denise McCarthy, associate professor and consultant the Dublin University Dental school.
