LSUHSC research finds HPV-related head & neck cancers rising, highest in middle-aged white men

nce for HPV-associated sites, while incidence declined for Non-Hispanic Blacks independent of HPV-association of site. The evidence from this large population-based study suggests that since the disease process for HPV-associated tumors is different, HPV tumor status should be incorporated into treatment decisions for head and neck cancer patients to improve prognosis and survival.

"With the introduction of the HPV vaccine, this study suggests that the vaccine can not only be used to help prevent cervical cancer, but head and neck cancer as well," adds Dr. Edward Peters, Associate Professor and Director of the Epidemiology Program at the LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Public Health.

Head and neck cancer includes cancer in the nasal cavity, sinuses, lips, mouth, salivary glands, throat, or larynx (voice box). According to the National Cancer Institute, head and neck cancers account for approximately 3 percent of all cancers in the United States. These cancers are nearly twice as common among men as they are among women. Head and neck cancers are also diagnosed more often among people over age 50 than they are among younger people. More than 52,000 men and women in this country were expected to be diagnosed with head and neck cancers last year.
