Preventive screening can help detect cancer early, when it’s most treatable and before it has a chance to spread. At Methodist, we understand that early detection is key to survival, and we’re proud to offer this service at no cost.

Our head and neck surgical oncologists will perform free head and neck cancer screenings on August 18, 2022 from 10 a.m. – Noon at the Methodist Fremont Health, Health Park Plaza. Use this opportunity to meet one of our expert physicians who will assess your risk factors and discuss preventive measures.

Each 15-minute screening appointment includes a head and neck physical exam as well as a review of your medical and family histories. This event is free and open to the public; however, registration is required to reserve an appointment time. To register, please complete the form below.

If you’re currently a patient at any of our head and neck oncology clinics, there’s no need to register for this event. Please contact your provider to discuss any screening questions or concerns.
