Stanford ENT Free Oral Screening November 2nd

October 18, 2013

Please read below and support our ENT colleagues as they about to have their second annual Stanford Free Oral Screening event!

Oral cancer affects 40,000 new people each year and kills one life every hour in the United States. Many cases are preventable and can be linked to tobacco use, alcohol, HPV, and lack of oral hygiene. Early detection of oral cavity lesions through a quick, painless, and noninvasive screening is the most effective way to counter this harsh reality.

To help fight this disease, increase awareness, and promote the importance of the oral exam, the Stanford Hospital & Clinics will offer its second annual Free Oral Cancer Screening on November 2, 2013. The screening will take place from 8AM to 12PM at Stanford’s Ear, Nose, and Throat Clinic, 801 Welch Road. Educational material regarding risk factors, tobacco cessation, and low-cost dental care will also be available.
