Early Detection Is More Important Than Ever: HLRCC Hosts Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Screeenings

On April 18, the Leever Cancer Center provided free oral, head and neck cancer screenings.

Assisted by six providers and eight staff members who volunteered their time, Leever screened 26 people at high risk for these types of cancer. A follow-up appointment with their primary care physician was recommended for 22 of the people screened. Four were referred for further head and neck evaluation, one of whom received an immediate referral.

All of the people screened said they did not know how to do an oral self-examination, and 65% said the screening improved their awareness of the disease. Thank you to all who made the event a success!
