Free Head and Neck Cancer Screenings at Methodist Fremont Health

Published: July 26, 2022

The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 65,000 Americans will be diagnosed with a head and neck cancer in 2022 alone.

As with any cancer, early diagnosis is key.

Methodist Fremont Health is hosting free oral head and neck cancer screenings on Aug. 18 from 10 to 11:45 a.m. to potentially catch those cancers in their earliest stages.

The screenings are guided by fellowship-trained oncologists from Methodist, the area’s largest specialty practice for head and neck cancers.

People who should consider attending the free screenings are those who smoke, chew tobacco, drink alcohol, have a prior history of cancer in the head or neck region, or have had multiple sexual partners.

Signs and symptoms that shouldn't be ignored include a mouth sore that isn’t healing, sore throat, difficulty swallowing, a change in voice or a painless lump in the neck.

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.

Schedule your appointment today at, or call (402) 727-3439.
