World Head & Neck Cancer Day: Free Head and Neck Cancer Screenings

In honor of World Head & Neck Cancer Day, please join us for free head and neck cancer screening. The screening will include a ten-minute exam to look for signs of head and neck cancer, counseling on how to quit smoking and nutritional advice on cancer-preventive diets. This type of cancer can occur in the nasal passages, mouth, throat, voice box, or skin. 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. 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; changes in skin or mole; or problems swallowing.
