Clinical Care and Rehabilitation in Head and Neck Cancer Pdf
Malignancies involving structures of the head and neck frequently impact the most fundamental aspects of human existence, namely, those functions related to voice and speech production, eating, and swallowing. Abnormalities in voice production, and in some instances its complete loss, are common following treatment for laryngeal (voice box) cancer. Similarly, speech, eating, and swallowing may be dramatically disrupted in those where oral structures (e.g., the tongue, jaw, hard palate, pharynx, etc.) are surgically ablated to eliminate the cancer. Consequently, the range and degree of deficits that may be experienced secondary to the treatment of head and neck cancer (HNCa) are often substantial. This need is further reinforced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who have estimated that the number of individuals who will be newly diagnosed with HNCa will now double every 10 years. This estimate becomes even more critical given that an increasing number of those who are newly diagnosed will be younger and will experience the possibility of long-term survival post-treatment.
