Ear, Nose, Throat / April 8, 2021
Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer Awareness Week during the first week in April shines a light on a potentially fatal disease.
Observance of this week is led by the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance (HCNA) and supported by the American Academy of Otolaryngology. HCNA is a non-profit organization that works with health professionals and organizations, celebrities, and survivors to enhance the overall effort in prevention, treatment, and detection of cancers of the head and neck region.
Oral, head, and neck cancers refer to many types of cancers, including those that arise in the nasal cavity, sinuses, lips, mouth, thyroid glands, salivary glands, throat or larynx. Cancers of the oropharynx (tonsil and base of tongue) are increasing in incidence, particularly in younger nonsmokers, due to their association with the human papillomavirus (HPV).
At the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center, our physicians work very closely with a team of specialists to detect, diagnose, treat, and optimize patient care for cancerous tumors of the face, head, and neck.
