Global Head and Neck Cancer Market 2017-2026: Full Disease Coverage Report - Market is Projected to Reach $2.8bn in Value by 2026, with Growth Driven by Immunotherapies - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Head and Neck Cancer: Full Disease Coverage" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common cancer worldwide, and includes malignancies that can originate in the oral cavity, salivary glands, sinuses, and throat. Around 90% of cases have an epithelial origin, which present as squamous cell carcinomas. Environmental factors such as tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption greatly increase the risk of developing head and neck cancers. If diagnosed at an early stage, treatment for these cancers can be curative; however, the majority of patients are diagnosed when the disease is advanced, resulting in the need for more than one treatment modality.
