A man has thanked a dentist for “saving my life” after a routine check revealed cancer in his mouth.

John Sanders, 55, from Plymouth was being checked by dentist Jasleen Batra when she found a lump in his mouth.

He was referred to Derriford Hospital where the lump was diagnosed as cancer, originating from the tonsils.

He has been treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and was told on Thursday his chances of survival were “very very good.”
