Summaries for Head and Neck Cancer

MedlinePlus: 41 Head and neck cancer includes cancers of the mouth, nose, sinuses, salivary glands, throat, and lymph nodes in the neck. Most begin in the moist tissues that line the mouth, nose, and throat. Symptoms include: A lump or sore that does not heal A sore throat that does not go away Trouble swallowing A change or hoarseness in the voice Head and neck cancers are twice as common in men. Using tobacco or alcohol increases your risk. In fact, around 75% of head and neck cancers are linked to tobacco use, including smoking and smokeless tobacco. Infection with HPV is a risk factor for some head and neck cancers. To diagnose head and neck cancer, your doctor will do a physical exam and diagnostic tests. You will have a biopsy, where a sample of tissue is taken out and examined under a microscope. It is the only test that can tell for sure if you have cancer. If found early, these cancers are often curable. Treatments may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination. Treatments can affect eating, speaking or even breathing, so patients may need rehabilitation. NIH: National Cancer Institute

MalaCards based summary: Head and Neck Cancer, also known as head and neck neoplasm, is related to squamous cell carcinoma, head and neck and squamous cell carcinoma. An important gene associated with Head and Neck Cancer is MIR205 (MicroRNA 205), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Endometrial cancer and Malignant pleural mesothelioma. The drugs Dopamine and Benzydamine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lymph node, salivary gland and skin, and related phenotypes are neoplasm and no phenotypic analysis

Disease Ontology: 11 An organ system cancer that arises in the head or neck region. This region includes the nasal cavity, sinuses, lips, mouth, salivary glands, throat, or larynx.
