Head and Neck Cancer Screening Program

Participants at a head and neck screening event

Upcoming Skin, Head, Neck, and Oral Cancer Screening Events

Moffitt Cancer Center's head and neck cancer screening program travels to venues in the Tampa Bay area community offering free head and neck cancer screenings and education to the public. The head and neck cancer screenings service began in April 2017 and is led by head and neck surgeon Dr. J. Trad Wadsworth. Since April 2017, the program has screened over 1,900 participants with approximately 150 abnormal findings.

During a head and neck cancer screening, a healthcare provider reviews the participant’s medical history and provides a comprehensive clinical exam of the participant’s oral cavity, throat and ears for abnormalities.  If abnormalities are identified, the participant is referred to their primary care physician or an ear, nose and throat physician. Additionally, participants will be provided with educational materials on prevention and early detection. A head and neck cancer screening is recommended annually for those at risk.

The free head and neck cancer screenings have been offered at popular events such as the Tampa Bay AirFest, St. Pete Grand Prix, Pier 60-Clearwater Beach and Buccaneers Treasure Chest 5K. Check out the Moffitt calendar to stay up-to-date on upcoming screening events.
