Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The authors present the section of the guidelines of the French Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Society (SFORL) for the management of somatic pain induced by head and neck cancer treatment concerning management of pain following radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

METHODS:

A multidisciplinary work group was entrusted with a literature review. Guidelines were drawn up based on the articles retrieved and the group members' experience. They were read over by an editorial group independent of the work group. A coordination meeting drew up the final version. Guidelines were graded A, B or C or as expert opinion in decreasing order of level of evidence.

RESULTS:

Particular care should be given to detection and early adapted treatment of pain induced by radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy, to improve quality of life in head and neck cancer patients.
