Book Description

The purpose of this book is to provide a current perspective on the epidemiology head and neck cancer. Cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx comprise an important group of tumors with diverse international patterns of incidence and mortality, established risk factors, suggested association with a virus, and potential genetic susceptibility determinants. These tumors offer a unique insight into mechanisms of cancer initiation and progression and gene-exposure interaction.
Epidemiology, Pathogenesis, and Prevention of Head and Neck Cancer provides a current perspective on the epidemiology of head and neck cancer. Cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx comprise an important group of tumors with diverse international patterns of incidence and mortality, established associations with tobacco and alcohol use, the human papilloma virus, and potential determinants of genetic susceptibility. Because of these factors, head and neck cancer offers a unique insight into mechanisms of cancer initiation and progression and gene-exposure interaction. This book brings together the latest epidemiologic and molecular genetic evidence regarding the patterns of occurrence and causes of head and neck cancer. In addition, Epidemiology, Pathogenesis, and Prevention of Head and Neck Cancer considers approaches to chemoprevention, and incorporates a multidisciplinary perspective including salient clinical, pathologic, molecular, and epidemiologic contributions.
