Free oral cancer screenings at Stanford Hospital & Clinic

October 20, 2012 10:23:41 AM PDT
Stanford Hospital and Clinics is providing oral cancer screenings for free Saturday morning. It could be a life saver because mouth cancers are often not diagnosed until the disease has spread to other parts of the body.

Stanford doctors will make quick and painless exams using a high-powered light to detect mouth lesions.

You can also get help with low-cost dental care and quitting smoking as part of the screening.

The services are being offered from 8 a.m. to noon at Stanford's Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic, 801 Welch Road, Palo Alto.
