Free Oral Cancer Screening Tuesday

  • Monday, 27 April 2015 18:31

5 minutes that could save your life!

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

9:00-3:00

Dental Hygiene Clinic

Greer-Stafford Allied Health Building (Moorhead Campus)

 

Call 662-246-6249 to make an appointment for your complimentary screening.

Walk-ins Welcome!

Oral cancer is not a rare disease. Approximately 37,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer every year in the US. It kills one person every hour of every day, and over 100 new individuals will be diagnosed with it each day. The good news is that it can often be found early in its development, through a simple, painless, and quick screening.

Who should get screened?

Every adult! Oral cancer can often be caught early, even as a pre-cancer. With early detection, survival rates are high and the side effects from treatment are at their lowest. Like other screenings you engage in such as cervical, skin, prostate, colon and breast examinations, oral cancer screenings are an effective means of finding cancer at its early, highly curable stages. Make them part of your annual health check-ups.

Early Indicators:

  • Red and/or white discolorations of the soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Any sore which does not heal within 14 days.
  • Hoarseness which lasts for a prolonged period of time.
  • Advanced Indicators:
  • A sensation that something is stuck in your throat.
  • Numbness in the oral region.
  • Difficulty in moving the jaw or tongue.
  • Difficulty in swallowing.
  • Ear pain which occurs on one side only.
  • A sore under a denture, which even after adjustment of the denture, still does not heal.
  • A lump or thickening which develops in the mouth or on the neck.

Dental Exams Saves Lives! For more information about oral cancer, please log onto The Oral Cancer Foundation’s official website at www.oralcancer.org.
