Brief Summary :

Head and Neck cancer accounts for 40% of all cancers in Pakistan with a 15% rise annually. Major risk factor is use of smokeless tobacco. Most of these patients belong to poor socio-economic class, have notable comorbidities and due to lack of awareness present with advanced disease.
