ESMO 2017 Highlights in Head and Neck Cancer: Spotlight on Immunotherapy
 
05:43
Marco Merlano explains that head and neck cancer remains an interesting field of investigation for immunotherapy because these tumours have high mutational burden. Among all of the studies presented in Madrid, two results deserve more attention. Robert Haddad presented the results of the subgroup of patients treated beyond progression from the analysis of the Checkmate 141 study. He explains that nivolumab has been able to reduce tumour size even in patients who were already treated with the drug. It shows that treatment beyond progression can be considered in selected patients to improve survival. The SCORES study is a completely novel approach targeting both the immune check points and the tumour microenvironment. Ezra Cohen explains that the idea of combining different immune modulators is to improve the efficacy of anti-PD(L)-1 that would benefit the patients more than the use of single agents. The results from this study suggest that the combination of a PD-L1 antagonist with an agent targeting the tumour microenvironment (STATi) heightens the effect of the anti-PD(L)-1 antibody and is more effective in the highly immuno-suppressive tumour microenvironment. Better results, up to 30% response rate, were obtained in PD-L1-treatment-naïve patients.

Head and Neck Cancer Survivor | Mark's Story
 
04:33
Mark found a lump in the neck and was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the neck. Mark did his research for the top- rated institutions in the country who treated Head and Neck Cancer. He chose to go to Penn Medicine. At Penn he met Dr. Weinstein, who recommended TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS). TORS, was invented at Penn is the world’s first minimally invasive surgery t techniques that enable Penn surgeons to remove benign and malignant tumors of the mouth and throat. Mark’s tumor was removed while preserving his ability to speak and swallow. Penn recommended Mark for Proton Therapy at the Roberts Proton Therapy Center. Proton therapy is a non–invasive, incredibly precise cancer treatment that uses a beam of protons moving at very high speeds to destroy the DNA of cancer cells. Today Mark is cancer-free.

Hard to Swallow- After Effects of Head & Neck Cancer
 
01:51
A cancer survivor, Michael Tartaro is happy he’s around to talk about it. “I had base of the tongue, head, and neck cancer. Stage four with tumors.” He immediately underwent intense treatment. “Radiation and heavy chemo for three months - they’d rather hit it quickly and hard,” says Tartaro. In years past, eradicating his cancer could have left Tartaro speechless. “If you go back 10 years ago, patients were getting more radical neck dissections. There was more accessory nerve damage. Radiation wasn’t quite as pin-pointed. Chemo drugs were a little bit different. So we had a full gamut of different side effects,” says Stacey Brill a speech therapist with Lee Memorial Health System. She provides therapy for oral cancer patients. Even with fewer surgeries performed today, life-saving treatments are almost always life-changing. “Eighty-five percent of this population does have a swallowing deficit to a varying degree.” Getting a head start on therapy can minimize aftereffects. Helping patients swallow and eat, returning them to their pre-cancer selves as quickly as possible. “A lot of them do have aspiration risks. If we can go ahead and start their therapy at that point in time, and start working with the muscles, we get better and faster outcomes.” To counteract scarring and tissue damage, Tartaro undergoes electrical stimulation. It reduces his risk of choking and makes it easier to eat by retraining his swallowing muscles. “Curing the cancer is amazingly good. But if you don’t have the therapy to follow up, I mean if I couldn’t eat anymore, you start to get the quality of life issues, serious quality of life issues,” says Tartaro. With specialized care, head and neck cancer patients can face the future in the fullest sense.

6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer
 
07:27
6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer: 1. Sore throat A sore throat is rarely worth worrying about — after all, it can be caused by a range of fairly harmless afflictions, from over-exerting the voice muscles to seasonal allergies to the common cold. Generally speaking, a sore throat is either very temporary or just the first sign that a head cold is setting in. However, a sore throat could indicate that an individual is developing throat cancer. While it can be difficult to distinguish between a common cold and throat cancer, in the latter case the pain will not go away after a few days or even weeks. In essence, if you develop a painful sore throat without any of the other symptoms of a head cold, and the sore throat doesn’t go away after a week or so, then it may be time to speak to a doctor about a thorough examination. 2. Mouth pain Like many of the other symptoms on this list, mouth pain doesn’t necessarily mean there’s anything to worry about. After all, it can be caused by many things, from burning your tongue on hot food to using a new toothbrush. Of course, mouth pain can also be the result of poor oral hygiene, such as failing to brush, floss or rinse on a regular basis. But this pain should subside in time, particularly if the afflicted individual is taking care with their oral hygiene. And there are other indicators that something more serious is up, including red and white patches on the gums, tongue, or mouth lining. Bleeding gums and pain in the jaw could also be indicators that the mouth pain one is feeling is more serious and could be linked to head and neck cancer. If you experience a few of these symptoms, or your mouth pain doesn’t subside after a few days, it would be wise to speak with your doctor and/or dentist about the issue. 3. Difficulty talking Anyone with a serious throat infection or bad head cold will tell you that these relatively harmless afflictions can make it rather difficult to speak. Colds and infections of the throat can make it difficult. In most cases this pain will subside after a few days or a week or two. If the pain lasts, however, it could be a sign that there is a more serious problem affecting the throat, including the pharynx. Persistent pain in the throat making it difficult to speak should be considered serious and should be followed by a thorough examination by a physician to rule out throat cancer. 4. Trouble swallowing There are a few health conditions that can make it difficult to swallow, including moderately serious issues like strep throat. But even the common cold can present an individual with a sore throat that makes it difficult to swallow. However, if this pain persists — and there are none of the other symptoms that accompany the typical head cold, such as a cough and stuffy nose — then it’s a good idea to visit a doctor to determine the cause of the issue. It could simply be irritated as a result of an infection or seasonal allergies, but it may also be linked to throat cancer. If it’s the latter, it’s better to catch the problem early, thereby giving medical specialists more time to fight the disease. 5. Sinus pain Sinus pain is most often associated with seasonal allergies or the common cold. However, it can also be the result of structural issues affecting the nose and sinuses; in other words, if there are blockages in the nose, it could lead to plugged sinuses that don’t clear and lead to significant sinus pain and headaches. Additionally, dryness can cause the nose to feel stuffy and may even result in nose bleeds. The onset of sinus pain should be met with a visit to a physician who can help you determine if the problem is related to allergies, blockages, general dryness, or something more serious, such as nose cancer. If the problem does not respond to medications, such as antibiotics, then there’s an increased chance that it is a more serious issue. 6. Pain or numbness caused by inflammation The emergence of cancer in the head and neck area can lead to significant inflammation. If there’s a serious problem developing, an individual may notice swelling in their jaw or in the area just below their chin. The feeling of swelling — which is often accompanied by pain — in this part of the head could be the result of cancer emerging in the salivary glands. Inflammation resulting from the development of head and neck cancer can also lead to feelings of numbness or paralysis in the face muscles; this can also be accompanied by pain. If this pain lasts for more than a few days, it’s crucial the individual contact their physician right away to carry out an examination of the head and neck area.

Head & Neck Cancer - Symptoms and Signs
 
10:12
Head and neck cancer is strongly associated with certain environmental and lifestyle risk factors, including tobacco smoking, alcohol consumption, UV light, particular chemicals used in certain workplaces, and certain strains of viruses, such as human papillomavirus. [2] These cancers are frequently aggressive in their biologic behavior; patients with these types of cancer are at a higher risk of developing another cancer in the head and neck area.[2] Head and neck cancer is highly curable if detected early, usually through surgery, but radiation therapy may also play an important role, while chemotherapy is often ineffective.

Head and neck cancer: Know 7 Major symptoms in human body
 
04:12
In this video summarise common signs of head and neck cancer. This situation is known to be a group of cancers that usually start in or near the throat, voice box, nose, sinus or mouth. It starts in the cells that line the surfaces of these body parts. These cells are known as squamous cells. There are five main types of cancer and these have been named based on the head or neck that they affect. The symptoms of each of these cancers differ from the other. The five types of cancer are a 1st oral cavity, 2nd pharynx, 3rd larynx, 4th nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses and finally 5th salivary glands. One of the biggest reasons for head and neck cancer is tobacco. This also includes chewing tobacco and not just smoking. Second-hand smoke or passive smoking also raises the risk of head and neck cancer. Drinking too much alcohol also raises your risk. Some of the reasons that can raise your risk are getting too much sun, human papillomavirus, being older than 40, breathing in asbestos, wood dust or paint or other chemical fumes, smoking pot, not getting enough vitamin A or B, acid reflux, having a weak immune system, etc. In this video, I have mentioned some of the top symptoms of head and neck cancer.
