Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery

Head and neck cancer screening 2017

April is Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Month, which the Otolaryngology Department marked by holding a free public head and neck cancer screening on Friday, April 21. Participants received a thorough exam and education on the symptoms of head and neck cancers. Our head and neck faculty along with residents and fellows participated in the screening process and examined a total of 94 individuals. Six were referred for further evaluation, making this event our most productive screening event ever. During the screening Dr. Ken Byrd was interviewed by local WRDW channel 12. Many thanks to everyone who participated in the screening, ensuring the success of this worthy event.
