Every year, more than 61,000 people will develop new cases of head and neck cancers. Many types are considered preventable. To provide risk assessment, prevention and screening of these cancers, physicians from Northwell Health’s Hearing & Speech Center will offer a free 10 minute-exam on Wednesday, October 26, 2016, at 430 Lakeville Rd., New Hyde Park, 11040 (located on the LIJ Medical Center campus).
Head and neck cancers can affect the tongue, mouth, lips, throat, voice box, nose and salivary glands. Early symptoms of these cancers include sores, lumps or red/dark patches inside the mouth.
