Ten Minutes That Could Save Your Life (Oral, Head and Neck Screenings)
Just because you can’t feel it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. It is estimated that there will be more than 120,000 new cases of oral, head and neck cancer diagnosed in 2017. Unfortunately, many American’s do not recognize the symptoms of these life-threatening diseases. However, there is hope; if diagnosed early these cancers can be more easily treat without significant complications, and the chances of survival greatly increase.
KCH and the staff of the Department of Specialty Care—ENT offer free screenings on Thursday, April 27 from 4-6 pm. Otolaryngologist Suzanne Helming, DO, and certified nurse practitioners Britney McCullough and Amy Ferenbaugh will perform the screenings in the ENT office at the Knox Medical Pavilion. Appointments are necessary and there is a limited number (because of the limited number of appointments current patients of both Dr. Hetrick and Dr. Helming are asked not to participate in this screening). The screening is quick, painless and free, so call 740 393 5558 to schedule your appointment.
