[Head and neck squamous cell cancer].

[Article in Icelandic]


Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is relatively common and is strongly related to smoking and alcohol consumption but infection by human papillomavirus has also emerged as a risk factor for HNSCC. The treatment of these tumors is complicated and patients are best served by a multidisciplinary team. The therapy now commonly involves a multidisciplinary approach including surgery, radiation treatment and chemotherapy. Lower stage disease carries a relatively good prognosis. The treatment of metastatic HNSCC remains unsatisfactory and the prognosis of these patients is poor.
