Objectives/hypothesis: Literature examining long-term survival in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) with human papillomavirus (HPV) status is lacking. We compare year overall survival (OS) rates for cases to population-based controls.

Study design: Prospective cohort study. Methods: Cases surviving 5 years postdiagnosis were identified from the Carolina Head and Neck Cancer. Prognosis for Head and Neck Cancer The overall survival rate for head and neck cancer has risen since However, it still remains about 50%, which means that half of people with the condition will die within five years.

Discovering the disease in the early stages improves the chance of complete recovery. Cancers of the brain, the eye, the esophagus, and the thyroid gland, as well as those of the scalp, skin, muscles, and bones of the head and neck, are not usually classified as head and neck cancers.

Sometimes, cancerous squamous cells can be found in the lymph nodes of the upper neck when there is no evidence of cancer in other parts of the head and neck (). For all head and neck cancer subtypes, one-year survival falls between 1 and 5 years after diagnosis, though the gradient of the fall varies between subtypes.

For most head and neck cancer subtypes, one-year survival falls between 5 and 10 years after diagnosis. Hypopharyngeal Cancer. The 5-year survival rate tells you what percent of people live at least 5 years after the cancer is found.

Percent means how many out of The 5-year survival rate for people with head and neck cancer varies and depends on several factors. Head and neck cancers are a broad category of cancers that occur in the head and neck region.

Cancer can develop at multiple sites in the head and neck. Our evidence-based summaries have information about the incidence, signs, risk factors, prognosis, staging, and treatment of the following head and neck cancer sites in adults.

Each head and neck cancer is staged slightly differently. In general, in stages I–II the cancer is small and hasn’t spread from the primary site (early head and neck cancer). In stages III–IV the cancer is larger and has spread to other parts of the body or the lymph nodes (advanced head and neck cancer).

Non-cancer lethality is calculated empirically from the population of SEER head and neck cancer patients, stratifying by age and gender. Current Age: Sex: Race: Years since diagnosis: A __-year-old woman without this cancer would have mean survival of __ years.

Stage III and stage IV head and neck cancers are more likely to recur than earlier-stage cancers. Staging for HPV-Positive Head and Neck Cancer. Head and neck experts have developed a separate staging system for HPV-positive cancer. This approach reflects the fact that HPV-positive tumors have a better prognosis than HPV-negative ones.

Head and neck cancer is a group of cancers that starts in or near your throat, voice box, nose, sinuses, or mouth. Usually, it begins in the cells that line the surfaces of these body parts.
