This is the tenth Annual Report from the National
Head and Neck Cancer Audit. It describes a group of
cancers (larynx, oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx,
nasopharynx, major salivary gland nose and sinuses and
cancer of the bones of the jaw) that have many common
features but also important differences in biological behaviour.
The Head and Neck Cancer Audit database contains a
vast amount of information on more than 54,000 head and
neck cancer cases, with 7,700 cases of cancer of the glottic
larynx, more than 7,500 cases of oral tongue cancer, more than 14,000 cases of larynx cancer, and almost 17,500 cases of oral cavity cancer.
September 2015: Updated with data files of the England information present in the annual report, in order to support open data and transparency.
