Free oral cancer screenings at Stanford Hospital & Clinic
PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- 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.
