Head and Neck Cancer is the general term used when malignant (cancerous) cells form inside many of the areas

within the head and the neck, including the mouth, nose and throat.

There are many different types of Head and Neck Cancers, each with specific risk factors, symptoms, prevention techniques and treatments. As a result, prognosis and treatment options vary based on each person’s own genetic makeup, location of the cancer cells and stage of the cancer.
