Our Video Library is an archive of some of the exceptional videos out there on the web that hope to improve education and awareness of mouth cancer. They all have invaluable information about the disease and chart the real life consequences of living with mouth cancer.

Steve’s Story

In May 2015, Steve Bergman was diagnosed with squamous HPV cancer. In this video, Steve discusses his personal experiences of what it felt like to be diagnosed with throat cancer and describes his journey so far.

There are also contributions from Paul Stimpson and Denise Redman of Macmillan Head and Neck CNS at Barts Health and University College Hospital, who take a look at HPV cancers in more detail, along with the disparity of the current vaccination programme.

Michael Douglas

Actor and producer Michael Douglas donated his time to help create a television public service announcement on behalf of the Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those affected by the disease.

The Academy Award winner was diagnosed with a tumour in his throat in 2010, and has undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

This high profile case has brought oral cancers into the lime light, and oral health experts are keen to make the public more aware of the key risk factors and early warning signs.

Douglas quit smoking in 2006, after a long ‘half a packet a day’ habit. Yet, the possibility of developing oral cancer remains higher for ex-smokers than non-smokers for 20 years after quitting.

Blythe Danner

Blythe Danner has graced stage, big screen, and TV for decades, and is, without question, one of Americas acting treasures. Mother to Gwyneth Paltrow, in 2002 she lost her husband director / producer Bruce Paltrow to oral cancer.

NHS Mount Vernon Cancer Network

This superb short film Head and Neck Cancer: Improving Early Diagnosis is one of four excellent videos by NHS Mount Vernon Cancer Network. This video contains accounts for clinical experts, as well as mouth cancer sufferers themselves, highlighting the risks and early warning signs associated with mouth cancer.

Healthcare Learning

‘Patient – Examination – Referral’ is a first hand account from former mouth cancer sufferer Ralph Goodson. The wonderful video also looks into the major risk factors of the disease and briefly discusses the importance of self-examination.
