Improvements in diagnostics and imaging techniques, advancements in various treatment modalities, and incorporation of quality-of-life and functional outcomes in HNCs have also significantly influenced the management and outcomes of the disease. This book brings together a broad, comprehensive and balanced view of current approaches to the multidisciplinary management and underlying biology of HNCs. It covers a wide range of exciting new findings in both the clinical and the basic sciences relevant to HNC. International experts in surgical, medical and radiation oncology and the basic sciences have contributed authoritative overviews of the current status and new frontiers in the management of HNCs. The multidisciplinary scope of this book provides the necessary grounding for residents, otolaryngologists and head and neck surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists and allied specialists involved in the management of HNCs.
