Orange Regional Medical Center's Spagnoli Family Cancer Center Offers Free Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Screenings

April 1, 2013

Middletown, NY- In recognition of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center is offering free oral, head and neck cancer screenings. Appointments are available during the week of April 15th at the Community Health Education Center, 110 Crystal Run Road, Middletown. Registration is required. To schedule an exam, please call The Orange Regional Health Connection at 1-888-321-ORMC (6762) by 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10.

According to the American Cancer Society, head and neck cancers account for about 3% to 5% of all cancers in the United States. This year, an estimated 54,000 will develop head and neck cancers. However, many symptoms go undetected, but, if diagnosed early, these cancers can be more easily treated without significant complications and the chances of survival greatly increase. 

“We’re proud to offer this service to our community,” says Dr. Sergey Koyfman, Medical Director of Orange Regional’s Head and Neck Cancer Disease Management Team. “Early detection is vital to more favorable outcomes for those diagnosed with some form of oral, head and neck cancer.” 

The signs and symptoms of oral cancer often go unnoticed though there are visible signs that require immediate attention, including: 
• Red or white patches in the mouth that last more than two weeks 
• Change in voice or hoarseness that lasts more than two weeks 
• Sore throat that does not subside 
• Pain or swelling in the mouth or neck that does not subside
