Head and Neck Cancers, Version 1.2015
We evaluated the ability of these guidelines to capture disease recurrence. Results: At a median follow-up of Nineteen recurrences Improved surveillance algorithms to balance patient benefit against costs are needed. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma NPC is radiosensitive and radiation was the mainstay definitive treatment. Though excellent control especially in local and regional disease can be achieved, recurrence after primary treatment is a major threat for NPC patients, particularly in patients who present with advanced stage NPC.
Treating head and neck cancer patients with systemic therapy is challenging because of tumor related, patient related and treatment related factors. In this review, we aim to summarize the current standard of care in the curative and palliative setting, and to describe best practice with regard to structural requirements, procedures, and monitoring outcome. Treatment advice for individual head and neck cancer patients is best discussed within a multidisciplinary team. Cisplatin is the drug of choice for concomitant chemoradiotherapy in the primary and postoperative setting, and also a main component of induction chemotherapy. However, acute and late toxicity is often significant. Checkpoint inhibitors have recently been proven to be active in the metastatic setting which has resulted in a shift of paradigm. Detailed knowledge, institution of preventive measures, early recognition, and prompt treatment of adverse events during systemic therapy is of paramount importance.

Follow-Up in Head and Neck Cancer: A Management Dilemma
Currently, the role of adjuvant irradiation in head and neck cancer HNC patients with N1-lymph node status is not clarified. To assess the population-based effect of recent developments in radiotherapy such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy IMRT in relation to overall survival OS together with surgery in N1 HNC patients. For each period, we examined a possible association between treatment surgery vs. Statistical analyses included Kaplan—Meier and multivariate Cox regression models adjusted for HPV-related cancer site. In patients with N1 tumours, a comparison of patients treated with and without radiotherapy during the HIA period showed a superiority of the combined treatment as opposed to surgery alone HR 0.

Research is ongoing regarding the different types of particle therapy, including protons and carbon ions, with the goals of reducing the long-term side effects from RT and improving the therapeutic index. This activity is designated to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, and pharmacists involved in the management of patients with cancer. There is no fee for this article. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. NCCN designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1.
