Abstract

Head and neck cancers constitute a third of the cancer burden in India. These cancers have unique patient characteristics, presentation, and etiological differences from those in the West. Socioeconomic constraints, large patient population, scarcity of trained health workers, and inadequate infrastructure are major challenges faced in the management of these cancers. Despite these constraints, patients are treated with evidence based guidelines that are tailored to the local scenario.
