Head and neck cancers affect the tongue, mouth, lips, throat, voice box, nose, salivary glands and thyroid. You might discover early indications of head and neck cancer, such as sores, pain, lumps or red/dark patches in your mouth.
The best way to determine your risk is to be screened by a physician. Make an appointment for a free head and neck cancer screening this Thursday, October 16, between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. The Hearing and Speech Center at LIJ Medical Center will host the event.
This year, more than 55,000 people will develop new cases of head and neck cancers. The screening only takes 10 minutes, and it could save your life.
Space is limited. Call 1-855-858-8550 to schedule an appointment.
