Squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck mucosa

  >   Rahul's Noteblog   >   Notes on Pathology   >   Squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck mucosa

Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck is very common in people with a significant history of alcohol and tobacco use. The first manifestations are palpable cervical lymph nodes.

The best initial step is panendoscopy (triple endoscopy - esophagoscopy, bronchoscopy, and laryngoscopy) in order to detect primary tumor.

After the primary tumor has been detected, the next step would be to do a biopsy of the tumor.

Further plan of management is based on the type of tumor detected. Treatment options include radial neck dissection, tumor resection, platinum-based chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and palliative management.
