About head and neck cancer
Various types of malignant tumors grown in and around head and neck are collectively known as head and neck cancers. Most head and neck cancers usually begin in the squamous cells that line the moist mucosal surfaces inside the mouth, throat, and nose. This is often identified as squamous cell carcinoma. The cancers start in the oral cavity, nasal cavity, larynx, salivary glands, pharynx, and paranasal sinuses. Also, other types of cancer may arise near the brain, thyroid, esophagus, and eye. Some of the diagnostic methods used to diagnose head and neck cancers are diagnostic imaging, endoscopy, biopsy, and dental diagnostics.
