Abstract

According to 2009 estimates provided by the American Cancer Society, approximately 35,160 men and 12,850 women are expected to be diagnosed with cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx in the United States, and approximately 8,140 men and 3,120 women are expected to die from these cancers [1] . This chapter reviews the descriptive patterns of squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx.
