Early Detection Saves Lives
In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Paul W. Golas, D.M.D. will be offering free oral cancer screenings for the month of April 2011. Oral cancer is not a rare disease. Approximately 37,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer every year in the U.S. It kills one person every hour of every day, and over 100 new individuals will be diagnosed with it each day. The good news is that it can often be found early in its development, through a simple, painless and quick screening. Who should get screened? Every adult. Oral cancer can often be caught early, even as a pre-cancer. With early detection, survival rates are high and the side effects from treatment are at their lowest. Like other screenings you engage in such as cervical, skin, prostate, colon and breast examinations, oral cancer screenings are an effective means of finding cancer at its early, highly curable stages. Make them part of your annual health check ups. What are the risk factors? There are two distinct pathways by which most people come to oral cancer. One is through the use of tobacco and alcohol, a long term historic problem and cause, and the other is through exposure to the HPV16 virus (human papilloma virus version 16), a newly identified etiology, and the same one responsible for the vast majority of cervical cancers in women. The quickest growing segment of the oral cancer population are young, health, non-smokers due to the connection to this virus.
Early Indicators: • Red and/or white discolorations of the soft tissues of the mouth. • Any sore which does not heal within 14 days. • Hoarseness, which lasts far a prolonged period of time.
Advanced Indicators: • A sensation that something is stuck in your throat. • Numbness in the oral region. • Difficulty in moving the jaw or tongue. • Ear Pain, which occurs on one side only. • A sore under a denture, which even after adjustment of the denture, still does not heal. • A lump or thickening, which develops in the mouth or on the neck. An oral cancer screening should be conducted every year, so take advantage of this free offer and get screened today.

Vehicle-Pedestrian Accident Under Investigation
submitted by Hudson Police Department On March 29 at approximately 1:38 p.m., the Hudson Police and Fire Departments responded to Walmart on Lowell Road for a report of a motor vehicle-pedestrian collision. Upon arrival, it was determined a 1996 Chevrolet Lumina was backing
north out of a parking spot at Walmart. The Lumina was driven by Noreen Corcoran, 49, of Tyngsborough, MA. A pedestrian was walking west in the parking lot. The pedestrian was identified as of Emma Wallace, 64, of Hudson.
As the Lumina was backing out of the spot, it struck Wallace. Members of the Hudson Fire Department attended to Wallace at the scene. She was transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua for non-life threatening injuries. The cause of the collision is still under investigation, but excessive speed has been ruled out.
