Cancer Screening

The head and neck team at Orlando Health Cancer Institute is committed to providing exceptional care and recognizes the challenges faced by patients in our community. As experts in head and neck cancer care, we understand socioeconomic risk factors that may influence delays in seeking diagnosis and treatment.

Current United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines do not recommend routine screening for head and neck cancer. However, our team realizes that this generalized advice may not adequately account for the specific needs of our community. As such, we are committed to providing periodic, comprehensive head and neck cancer screening free of charge.
