Cancers that are known collectively as head and neck cancers usually begin in the squamous cells that line the mucosal surfaces of the head and neck (for example, those inside the mouth, throat, and voice box). These cancers are referred to as squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. Head and neck cancers can also begin in the salivary glands, sinuses, or muscles or nerves in the head. • Squamous cell carcinoma with prominent keratinization 8070 is not equivalent to keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma 8071 • Salivary gland adenocarcinoma 8140 is not equivalent to salivary duct carcinoma 8500.

The demographics of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) is marked by a growing number of patients aged 65 and over, which is in line with global projections for other cancer types. In developed countries, more than half of new SCCHN cases are diagnosed in older people, and in 15 years from now, the proportion is expected to rise by more than 10% Head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) are the most common histologic type of head and neck cancer. While the term may include any squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, common usage focuses on those of mucosal origin, i.e., squamous cell carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract, which is reflected in this article. Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is discussed separately
The stages of head and neck cancer are: Stage 0: The tumor is only growing in the part of the head and neck where it started. No cancer cells are present in deeper layers of tissue, nearby structures, lymph nodes or distant sites (carcinoma in situ). Stage I (stage 1 head and neck cancer): T he primary tumor is 2 cm across or smaller, and no. Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC) is the 9th leading cancer by incidence worldwide and constitutes 90% of all head and neck cancers [1, 2].In the US, approximately 50,000 new cases of HNSCC and more than 10,000 deaths occur per year [3,4,5,6].HNSCC is a biologically diverse and genomically heterogeneous disease that arises from the squamous mucosal lining of the upper. The general topic of this editorial is the extent to which the status of the ipsilateral neck should determine the need for elective treatment of the contralateral neck in patients with head and neck cancer. We focus the discussion on patients with well-lateralized squamous cell carcinoma of the palatine tonsil because recently published guidelines appear to mandate contralateral neck.

Here, we tested whether adjuvant therapy should be guided by a detailed analysis of pathologic risk factors in patients with pure OCSCC Staging Criteria AJCC. In the recently published eighth edition, cSCC is included in the chapter Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck 2 .Although the chapter focuses primarily on cSCC, the staging system applies to all histologic subtypes of carcinoma limited to the head and neck, with the exception of Merkel cell carcinoma Surgical margins in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma: NCCN, ASCO, and IEO guidelines deﬁne R close as B5 mm without any distinction for anatomical subsite. However, in the scientiﬁc literature, there is currently no consensus with regard to how wide this margin should be According to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines, the goal of treatment of basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) is elimination of the tumor with maximal preservation of function. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck is the most common malignancy (90%) of the upper aerodigestive tract. Cancer can develop in several different parts of the head and neck; some of the most common include oral cancer, laryngeal cancer, pharyngeal (throat) cancer, nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancers, thyroid cancer, and parathyroid tumors

Recent guidelines from the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) have been proposed for the assessment of high-risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCCs).

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) represents a group of tumors arising in the oral cavity, oropharynx, and larynx. Although HNSCC is traditionally associated with tobacco and alcohol consumption, a growing proportion of head and neck tumors, mainly of the oropharynx, are associated with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Recurrent/metastatic disease is characterized by dismal prognosis. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a major cause of cancer morbidity and mortality worldwide. It is the sixth most common cancer globally and attributed to 300,000 deaths each year. 1 However, over the past decade evidence has proved that HNSCC is not a monolithic disease, and tumors driven by HPV represent a clear and distinct.

SITC Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines - Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (HNSCC) Webinar When: Jul 24, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ET) On July 24, 2019, leading experts in cancer immunotherapy presented an overview of the recently published SITC Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines - Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck.
Nonmelanoma skin cancers (squamous cell and basal cell carcinomas) occur at an epidemic rate in many countries with the worldwide incidence increasing. The sun-exposed head and neck are the most frequent sites for these cancers to arise and in most patients diagnosed with a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, local treatment is usually curative. However, a subset is diagnosed with a high-risk. The contemporary standard of care in non-surgical, curative-intent management of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is definitive radiotherapy (RT) with or without concurrent chemotherapy [1, 2].Traditionally, HNSCC had been treated with conventional RT techniques which generally comprised of simple field arrangements, typically parallel-opposed portals with or without matching low.
