Free and Open to the Public
Medical professionals in the Department of Otolaryngology will provide free head and neck cancer screenings, Saturday, March 15, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Craft Brewed, a local craft brew and home supply store, 2502 Franklin Pike.
The public is invited to take advantage of the free cancer screenings and no appointments are needed.
There are more than 40,000 new cases of cancer of the oral cavity and throat every year in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society, and men are far more likely to be diagnosed than women.
The free screenings are painless and take just a few minutes. During the exam, specialists will examine the individual's mouth and throat and will palpate the neck. Patients who exhibit potential symptoms will be referred for follow-up exams. For more details, contact Andrew.d.Beckler@vanderbilt.edu Click Here
