Oral Cancer Awareness Event
April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and our goal at KDA is to encourage patients to be proactive with their health. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, approximately 54,000 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Late detection is the primary cause that both the incidence and mortality rates of oral cancer continue to increase. As with most cancers, age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. Tobacco and alcohol use are other major predisposing risk factors, but more than 25% of oral cancer victims have no such lifestyle risk factors. Scientists have established a connection between HPV viral infection in the mouth and the occurrence of oral cancer. Screenings are crucial for early detection. We encourage you to discuss your questions related to oral cancer with a member of our staff. Oral cancer screenings will be FREE every Wednesday during the month of April because your health is our top priority. Call (901) 767-4882 to reserve your appointment. Screenings save lives!
