Free Oral Cancer Screening 

Facts about oral cancer:

  • More than 50,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with oral cancer each year.
  • Your risk for developing oral cancer increases with age.
  • Men are more than twice as likely to develop oral cancer as women.
  • Ongoing problems like sore throat, ear pain, or difficulty chewing or swallowing may be signs of oral cancer.

When you get screened, you increase your chances of getting diagnosed at an earlier stage, helping improve treatment outcomes.

Free oral cancer screenings are being offered at three locations by Lehigh Valley Health Network dentists Michele A. Pisano-Marsh, DMD, and Charles J. Incalcaterra, DMD.
