Placerville Event: Free Screening Event for Head and Neck Cancer

Marshall Medical Center in partnership with Cold Springs Dental will be hosting a free screening event for head and neck cancer on October 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you smoke, drink alcohol or are sexually active, you may be at risk for cancer. A free, 10-minute screening could save your life.


This year, there will be 65,000 new cases and 14,000 deaths from oral, head and neck cancer or cancers that arise in the oral cavity (mouth), larynx (voicebox), pharynx (throat), sinuses, nasal cavity or salivary glands.


Alcohol and tobacco use (including smokeless tobacco) are the two most important risk factors for head and neck cancers, especially for cancers of the oral cavity and throat. Alcohol and tobacco use accounts for at least 75 percent of these cancers and the risk increases for those who use both. Infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) contracted through sexual contact is also a risk factor for some types of head and neck cancers.


Symptoms of head and neck cancers may include a lump or a sore that won’t heal, a persistent sore throat, difficulty swallowing, and a change or hoarseness in the voice. Since these are symptoms that are also associated with other conditions, a specific head and neck cancer screening is very important.


Come to Cold Springs Dental on October 16 anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at 2900 Cold Springs Road in Placerville for your free screening.
