Treating Head Cancer & Neck Cancer

Head cancer and neck cancer represent only about 3 percent of all cancers in the United States. Nearly twice as common in men as in women, head and neck cancers are found most often in adults over 50. Alcohol consumption and smoking (including use of smokeless or chewing tobacco) are the main risk factors for head and neck cancers.

Cancer treatment depends on many factors, including the precise tumor location, the stage of head or neck cancer and the patient’s age and overall health. Treatment may include chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, targeted therapy or some combination of these treatments.
