ORAL MEDICINE : What is Oral Mucositis?

Mucositis is a condition characterised by pain and inflammation of the body's mucous membrane.

The mucous membrane is the soft layer of tissue lining the digestive system from the mouth to the anus.

Mucositis is a relatively common side effect of chemotherapy.


It's also sometimes caused by radiotherapy, especially if it involves the head or neck.
