    Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.A medical professional who practices oncology is an oncologist. The name's etymological origin is the Greek word ὄγκος (óngkos), meaning 1. "burden, volume, mass" and 2. "barb", and the Greek word λόγος (), meaning "study".Cancer survival has improved due to three main Focus: Cancerous tumor. Head and Neck Cancer (HNC) is the sixth most common cause of cancer worldwide 1. HNC and its treatment has significantly impact on a patient's .

    Exciting advances are occurring in the understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of squamous head and neck cancers. Epidemiology, staging and screening, as well as premalignancy, chemoprevention and the molecular biology of head and neck cancer, lay the groundwork for the understanding of the clinical chapters that follow. These cancers are not head and neck cancer. CUP, or cancer of unknown primary, is a metastatic cancer (cancer that has spread) with an unknown starting point. If CUP first shows up in the head or neck, doctors may call it metastatic head and neck cancer and treat it like a head and neck cancer. For details about other cancers,File Size: 1MB.

This book employs a two-part approach to treating patients with head and neck cancer: maximize the chance for a cure while maintaining a strong emphasis on quality of life.

Although not seen as commonly as other aggressive forms, head and neck cancer is a devastating disease that has tremendous implications on the overall health of the patient, as well as their appearance and 5/5(1). NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology • Very Advanced Head and Neck Cancer (ADV-1) • Recurrent/Persistent Head and Neck Cancer (ADV-3) • Occult Primary (OCC-1) Outcomes are improved when patients with head and neck cancers are treated in high-volume centers.

Jatin P. Shah has brought together contributing authors in a single volume that represents the head and neck management team at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The strength of the volume is in its internal consistency of diagnostic approaches, therapeutic decisions, multidisciplinary treatment programs, and surgical techniques.

An effort has also volume III book made to Reviews: 1. An update on angiogenesis targeting volume III book head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

Angiogenesis is an integral aspect of the growth and proliferation of solid tumors, including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), and has potential implications in prognosis and treatment of both lo. Head and neck cancer is a highly malignant disease, and patient`s prognosis has not substantially improved during the recent decades.

Recent advances in basic research have identified the genetic background underlying head and neck squammous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) and the molecular pathways defining the biology of HNSCC-initiating cell. Head and Neck Cancer is the first, truly multi-disciplinary book in this field.

The focus is the 2-part approach that any physician treating these patients must follow: maximize the chance for a cure while maintaining a strong emphasis on quality of by: In laryngeal cancer, adding chemotherapy may allow organ preservation, improved local control, and improved survival.

The treatment of advanced head and neck cancer requires an intensive, multispecialty approach by an experienced team of dedicated physicians, nurses, speech therapists, and nutritionists, among : $ Get this from a library. Head and neck cancer, volume III: proceedings of the Third International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer, San Francisco, July [Jonas T Johnson; Mukund S Didolkar;].

Patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck who underwent PET-CT–guided surveillance after chemoradiation had overall survival rates similar to those of patients who underwent planned neck dissection and chemoradiation.

But PET-CT imaging resulted in fewer operations and was more cost-effective than neck dissection. Background: We conducted an investigator-initiated, phase 3 randomized study to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of addition of Nimotuzumab during concurrent chemoradiation in locally advanced squamous head and neck cancer (LASHNC).Methods: Adult subjects (age ≥ 18 years), with stage III-IV, LASHNC, Karnofsky performance status of ≥ 70 and adequate organ function Cited by: 2.
