Those who smoke, chew tobacco, consume alcohol, or have a prior history of head and neck cancer, have a greater risk of developing head and neck cancer. Symptoms include a lump, a sore that does not heal, a sore throat that does not go away, difficulty swallowing, and a change or hoarseness in the voice.
According to Dr. Thatcher, the vast majority of head and neck cancers are related to tobacco use, making it one of the most preventable diseases.
