About Head & Neck Cancer
Head and neck cancers usually begin in the Squamous cells that line the moist mucosal surfaces in the nasal sinuses, lips, mouth, salivary glands, throat or larynx. These cancers are further categorized by the area of the head or neck in which they begin and account for 3% of all cancers in the U.S. Heavy use of tobacco and alcohol are known risk factors for developing these cancers. When head and neck cancers spread it is usually to local lymph nodes and the lungs, and less often to the liver or bones.
