Cancer of the Head and Neck: Primary and Reconstructive Surgery

Cancer of the Head and Neck: Primary and Reconstructive Surgery Abstract Carcinoma, primary in the head and neck, comprises 15% of all human cancer.

The alert otolaryngologist by the nature of the physical examination of his patient should detect more primary neoplasms of the head and neck than any other specialist or general group.

Abstract

Abstract Carcinoma, primary in the head and neck, comprises 15% of all human cancer. This is a significant percentage when one considers the external and internal malignancies of the remainder of the body. This also becomes a significant subject and one which we could not expect to exhaust in any one paper. I would like, however, to cover most of the areas of the head and neck, making a few comments in regard to the primary and reconstructive surgery, including minor and major procedures. The alert otolaryngologist by the nature of the physical examination of his patient should detect more primary neoplasms of the head and neck than any other specialist or general group. The otolaryngologist should acquaint himself with management of these tumors whether or not he himself does the major surgery. If he is to understand the treatment of these lesions, whether large or small, he should be familiar References 1. Ashley, F. L.: Reconstruction of the Lacrimal Apparatus , Plast. & Reconstruct.
