There are thousands of new cases of head and neck cancer each year, many of which can be cured. The best chance for a cure is when the cancer is found early. In honor of World Head & Neck Cancer Day, please join us for free head and neck cancer screenings throughout the month of July at various locations.
The screening will include a ten-minute exam to look for signs of head and neck cancer, resources on how to quit smoking and nutritional resources on cancer-preventive diets. This type of cancer can occur in the nasal passages, mouth, throat, or voice box. Warning signs of head and neck cancer are frequent nose bleeds; ongoing nasal congestion; persistent sore or growth in mouth or throat; constant earaches; lasting change in voice; bloody phlegm lasting several days; lump in neck lasting more than two weeks; or problems swallowing.
This event is open to all.
