Event description

Description

Ten minutes could save your life.

Head and neck cancers frequently occur in places that are hard to see or feel. They frequently do not cause any symptoms, or the symptoms that do occur are the same as those experienced when you have a common cold. Unfortunately, these things can result in a delay of diagnosis for head and neck cancers.

The most common risk factors for head and neck cancer are tobacco use and excessive alcohol use. But, there are an increasing number of patients that do not have these risk factors that are developing head and neck cancer, typically at much younger ages. Education, prevention, and early detection are vitally important when it comes to cancer. At Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center, our physicians believe cancer screening is a critical part of our battle against cancer. While we always want to prevent cancer, screening helps to diagnosis the cancer early, when it is at its most treatable.

Because this is so important, we are hosting two head and neck cancer screenings during Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week, April 7-14 — one at Baptist MD Anderson and one at Baptist Medical Center South. The best part is they are free! A thorough non-invasive head and neck cancer screening takes less than 10 minutes and can offer you peace of mind. Please sign up for one of our screenings using Eventbrite. We have four available block times to choose from. Walk-ins are always welcome. Parking is also Free!
