With the rise of HPV mediated head and neck cancer in our country, awareness of the signs and symptoms of mouth and throat cancers is critical. If you have a sore throat lasting more than a few weeks, painful swallowing, a change in your voice or a new lump in your neck then an ENT exam is very important in the timely diagnosis of these very treatable cancers. We can perform comprehensive examinations of the mouth, throat and voice box. We work as part of a comprehensive care team with area medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to provide full spectrum cancer care in your community.
Eastern Shore ENT partners with Gulf Coast Cancer Center in an important screening for head and neck cancers. Dr. Brian Hixon explains why early detection is essential.
