Free cancer screenings are being offered to at-risk individuals at the Deaconess Gateway campus in Newburgh, Indiana on Thursday.

Deaconess says free screenings for oral, head, and neck cancers will be given by board-certified otolaryngologists and oncologists from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday evening.

The cancer screenings will be conducted outdoors due to COVID-19 protocols and is intended for individuals who are at higher risk of developing these cancers.

While the cancer screenings are free, Deaconess says appointments must be made.

You can click here to make an appointment on the Deaconess website. You can also call 812-450-7000 to learn more or to schedule your appointment.

The American Cancer Society estimates more than 60,000 cases of oral, head, and neck cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year. Tobacco and alcohol use, as well as any history of HPV infection, are risk factors for cancers of the head and neck.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
