Head and Neck Cancer

In Australia about 4500 people will be diagnosed with Head and Neck Cancer each year. Fortunately the frequency of head and neck cancer is decreasing. Although traditionally Head and Neck Cancers were related to tobacco smoking and alcohol, we are now seeing a new type of cancer related to infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV) which is often seen in non-smokers.

Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer may include:

  • Pain in the throat or neck
  • Lump in the throat
  • Trouble swallowing or breathing
  • Hoarse voice that does not improve with time
  • Lump in the neck
  • Ulcer on the tongue or mouth that does not heal with time
