The purpose of this book is to provide a current perspective on the epidemiology head and neck cancer. Cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx comprise an important group of tumors with diverse international patterns of incidence and mortality, established risk factors, suggested association with a virus, and potential genetic susceptibility determinants. These tumors offer a unique insight into mechanisms of cancer initiation and progression and gene-exposure interaction.
Will bring together in one place the latest epidemiologic evidence regarding the patterns of occurrence and causes of head and neck cancer
In addition, it will consider approaches to prevention and provide an epidemiologic perspective on survivorship issues
The epidemiologic data will be considered from a multidisciplinary perspective including salient clinical, pathologic, molecular contributions
