9:00 am CDTApril 7: Vanderbilt University Medical Center to Offer Free Head and Neck Cancer Screening

A hoarse voice or persistent sore throat that lasts for weeks may seem like a mild nuisance but those same symptoms could be early signs of head and neck cancer. To help patients determine their risk for disease and detect problems at an early stage the Vanderbilt Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center will offer free head and neck screenings Friday, April 7, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The annual screening and educational event at Vanderbilt University Medical Center is open to the public. The check-up is offered at no cost and no appointment is necessary.

The screening sessions will be held at the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center, Odess Head & Neck Surgery Clinic, 7209 Medical Center East - South Tower, 1215 21st Ave. South (free parking in the East Garage off Medical Center Drive).

During the free head and neck screening exams, physicians check the patient's mouth, tongue and throat and examine the neck for abnormalities. The exams are painless and take only a few minutes.

In addition to the exams, medical professionals will be available to discuss prevention, therapy, research, supportive care and rehabilitation.
