Head and neck cancers together make up 5% of all cancers diagnosed each year 120,000(1) across Europe. The most common head and neck cancers are:

  • the mouth and tongue (oral cavity)
  • the back of the throat (pharynx)
  • the voice box (larynx)
  • the sinuses

Oral cancers represent 3% of new cases in the UK and 6% in France; while in Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, oral cancer is the most common cancer in men and may account for up to 30% of all new cases of cancer (2).

But over the last decade, tremendous achievements have been made in the management of patients with Head & Neck Cancer. Advancement
