Over 50,000 Americans will be diagnosed with head & neck cancer this year, causing more than 10,000 deaths, making it the sixth most common cancer in the world. There are more than 640,000 new cases of oral cancer diagnosed annually worldwide.
To help our community fight oral, head and neck cancers, the UIC College of Dentistry is providing free oral cancer screenings Wednesday, April 17th, 9:30am-12:30 pm in the Oral Surgery Clinic located on the first floor, room 110. Those wishing to be screened can stop in anytime between 9:30am-12:30 pm.
The process will take about 5–10 minutes and will screen you for oral, head and neck cancer.
No appointment or insurance is required and walk-ins are welcome.
The screenings are held in conjunction with Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week, sponsored nationally by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Lilly, and Merck.
