If you have been diagnosed with a head and neck cancer, you are not alone: approximately 48,000 Americans receive this diagnosis every year. We can help, and the information on these pages will help you understand your diagnosis and the treatments and experts available to you.
Most head and neck cancers begin in the squamous cells that line many parts of the head and neck, such as the mouth, nose, and throat. These malignant growths are often called squamous cell carcinomas.
