Mercy Cancer Center is offering free oral cancer screenings to promote prevention and early detection of the disease.
Oral cancer screenings will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 12 noon on Friday, December 13th inside Mercy Dental Services (on the second floor of the Surgery Center/Cancer Center building). Mercy dental professionals will perform the exam and may use the VELscope system to help visualize abnormalities in high-risk patients. VELscope is an FDA approved non-invasive, hand-held device that uses fluorescence visualization technology to enhance the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.
Oral cancer screenings are free, but registration is required. To register, call Mercyâ€™s Healthcare Connection at 330-489-1333 or 800-223-8662.
