What to Expect During the Screening

OHC doctors will visually examine your head, neck, face and mouth to look for any masses, lesions and swelling, or any facial asymmetry. They will compare both sides of your neck for any signs of enlargement, while feeling for any enlarged lymph nodes. They will examine your mouth to look for both red and white lesions on the mucous membrane, as well any masses within the tissues. While examining your tongue, the doctors will note any ulcers, swellings or other abnormalities, and will likely ask you to stick out your tongue and move it from side to side to look for any spasms or asymmetry. They will use what’s called a laryngeal mirror to inspect the inside of the back of your throat.
