A number of videos have been prepared of patients (Real life stories) who have completed different treatments for a range of cancers within the mouth. Your specialist cancer team will be able to give you a password code so you can watch videos of a patient who has had treatment similar to what has been recommended for you.
Throughout many of these videos, patients will read the same short passage, called ‘The Grandfather Passage’. This is usually before treatment, a few months later and then around one year later. ‘The grandfather passage’ is often used to assess how well a person’s speech is understood by others.
At the end of this section you will find written information which you can download or print if you wish.
