Head and Neck Conditions

  • What are Head and Neck Conditions?

    Head and neck conditions refer mainly to tumours that affect head and neck areas including the nose and sinuses, the nasopharynx (the area behind the nose just above the mouth and throat), the oral cavity (the mouth), the thyroid glands, the oropharynx (throat), the larynx (voice box), the hypopharynx (the inlet into throat) and the salivary gland. These tumours can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Patients with neck lumps should have their condition assessed.

  • The risk factors for head and neck cancer can vary depending on the condition and the location of the cancer. However the most important ones are:

    • Alcohol use
    • Human papillomavirus infection
    • Tobacco use
  • The symptoms of head and neck cancers depend on the type of condition. Some of the general symptoms of head and neck cancers include:

    • A lump on the neck
    • Constant pain in the face or mouth that can’t be explained
    • Difficulty in swallowing
    • Hoarseness
    • Neck pain
