What is Head And Neck Cancer ?

Most head and neck cancers begin in the cells that line the mucosal surfaces in the head and neck area, e.g., mouth, nose, and throat. Mucosal surfaces are moist linings of hollow organs and cavities of the body. Normal mucosal cells look like scales (squamous) under the microscope, so head & neck cancers are often referred to as squamous cell carcinomas. Some head & neck cancers begin in glandular cells and are called adenocarcinomas.
