Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Month

Head and neck cancer awareness month

Doctors Hospital and Integra Healthcare (DHI) are proud to partner with Cayman Islands Cancer Society (CICS) to support Head and Neck Cancer Awareness and increase education on the signs and symptoms throughout the month of April!

Head and Neck Cancers, like all forms of cancer, are dangerous mutations in the cells of your body, affecting any part of the head and neck such as the mouth, tongue, throat, thyroid, and voice box. These cancers can occur more frequently in people over the age of 50 (Source: American Association for Cancer Research).

👉🏼If you have any of the symptoms mentioned in the slides or any other concerns, please contact Integra at (345) 745-7450 to book an appointment with our physician Dr Nadine Yammine, who specialises in ear, nose, and throat (ENT) Head and Neck disorders at Integra.

👉🏼Make sure to follow the Cayman Islands Cancer Society (@c.i.c.s on Instagram, @CICSCayman on Facebook) for more information on the support and resources available!
