Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Week, April 10-16, 2016


This year Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Week is April 10-16. To celebrate, the Temple Head & Neck Institute will be providing free head and neck screening examinations on the Temple University Hospital, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Jeanes Hospital and Temple Health Ft. Washington campuses.

The goal is to not only identify those with signs and symptoms that are worrisome for head and neck cancer, but to also provide key information on how to watch  for early changes in the mouth, head, or neck which might not be normal.
