“Head and neck cancer” refers to various malignant tumors that form in or around the nose, mouth, throat, sinuses, and larynx. Squamous cell carcinomas account for the majority of head and neck cancers. This cancer starts in the flat squamous cells that make up the thin layer of tissue on the surface of the structures in the head and neck.

Excessive alcohol intake, tobacco usage, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (for oropharyngeal cancer), and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection are the key risk factors for head and neck cancer. Other risk factors that may indirectly affect the usage of paan (betel quid), radiation exposure, and genetic abnormalities.

The majority of head and neck cancers are curable, especially if detected early. Although the major goal of treatment is to eliminate cancer, it is equally critical to preserving the function of adjacent nerves, tissues, and organs. Doctors examine how treatment may affect a person’s quality of life, such as how a person eats, talks, looks, feels, and breathes, while planning head and neck cancer treatment.
