Outlook Ben Kingsley Educating About Head and Neck Cancer

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

Sore throat, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, a mass in the neck, bad breath, ear ache – these could be early symptoms of head and neck cancer. Head and neck cancer refers to a range of malignant tumors that appear in the head and neck region. There are five types of head and neck cancer which are categorized by the areas in which they begin: Laryngeal and Hypopharyngeal Cancer (larynx or voice box), Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer, Nasopharyngeal Cancer (air passageway at upper part of the throat behind the nose), Oral and Oropharyngeal Cancer (mouth and tongue), and Salivary Gland Cancer.

Though there are other causes, 85% of head and neck cancers are caused by tobacco use, while alcohol consumption plays a significant role as well. If found early, head and neck cancer is often curable. Such treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or a combination.

Outlook with Ben Kingsley will inform the viewers of the risk factors, symptoms and causes of head and neck cancer in an effort to educate public television audiences and save lives through early detection. The TV show will also highlight physicians and hospitals providing treatment to patients fighting this deadly disease.

Outlook Ben Kingsley is distributed on public television stations in all fifty states throughout the U.S. For more information on about airtimes, topics, and how to participate, visit the official website at
