  • Head & neck cancer

Cancers that are known collectively as head neck cancers usually begin in the squamous cells that line the mucosal surfaces of the head and neck. These can be caused due to alcohol and tobacco use, consumption of betel quid, occupational exposure (Occupational exposure to wood dust is a risk factor for nasopharyngeal cancer), any underlying genetic disorder, and so on. 

Head and neck cancer usually occur in-

  • Oral cavity
  • Throat (pharynx)
  • Voice box (larynx)
  • Paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity
  • Salivary glands

It’s important to keep the symptoms, if any, in check.
