Thursday, November 07, 2013

Could you be at risk for oral cancer? You can find out on November 19th at free screenings offered by the Kennedy Cancer Center.

People who use tobacco – through cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and/or smokeless tobacco -- or who drink alcohol regularly are at higher risk for oral cancer. If they use tobacco and also drink, the risk is even greater. Free cancer screenings are being held on Tuesday, November 19th from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Kennedy Cancer Center, 900 Medical Center Drive, Suite 100, Sewell, NJ (behind Kennedy Hospital in Washington Township, just off Egg Harbor Road). Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please call (856) 218-5591 or register online at

Oral cancer can affect any part of the oral cavity, including the lips, tongue, mouth and throat. This painless examination takes about five minutes and will be conducted by board certified otolaryngologist (ENT) Mark E. Friedel, M.D., South Jersey-based Advanced ENT and a member of the Kennedy Medical Staff.
