  1. Head & Neck Cancer Screenings

    May 18, 2017, 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM

    Those who exhibit warning signs of oral, head and neck cancer - cancers that develop in the tongue, tonsils, sinuses, larynx (Voice box), thyroid, salivary glands, on the skin of the face and neck and in the lymph nodes of the neck - are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a screening. These warning signs can include red or white patches in the mouth, vocal changes or hoarseness lasting more than two weeks, a sore throat that does not subside, a lump in the neck, ear pain and difficulty speaking, swallowing and/or breathing. Those who smoke or use chewing tobacco are also encouraged to schedule a screening, as are young adults displaying any of the aforementioned symptoms are urged to schedule a screening, as research has linked increased incidences of tongue and tonsil cancer in this traditionally low-risk population to the rise of human papilloma virus (HPV).
