Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this book reviews the management of head and neck cancers, from initial diagnostic procedures through staging, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy to aftercare and rehabilitation. The content is organized in four sections.
The first introduces the multidisciplinary nature of managing this very diverse group of diseases and their treatment. Sections 2 and 3 review each of the major types of cancer. Section 2 is dedicated to tumours of the upper airways and digestive tract, including the mouth, nasopharynx, and larynx, while Section 3 covers the rest of the head and neck and organs including the skull base tumours, thyroid, and salivary glands.
