April Awareness

April is the nationally recognized month of awareness for a number of causes that impact the lives of Roswell Park patients and their loved ones. Join us as we support those who have been touched by cancer and raise awareness through a series of events, educational initiatives and links to useful web resources.


Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer Awareness

Tobacco, alcohol and HPV increase the risk for developing oral, head and neck cancers. Because symptoms often go unnoticed, early diagnosis is the key to preventing these cancers. Roswell Park recognizes those touched by oral, head and neck cancer throughout the month of April.

Testicular Cancer Awareness

Testicular cancer is most prominent in men 15-35 but can strike at any age. When found early, it has a 95 percent survival rate. Roswell Park encourages monthly testicular self-exams as the most effective method of early detection. Join us as we support patients and their families throughout April for Testicular Cancer Awareness Month.
