Put Your Treatment for Mouth or Throat Cancer through Clinical Trials with Worldwide

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, the incidence of oral and oropharyngeal cancers has been increasing over the last decade. Today, more than 50,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with some sort of mouth or throat cancer each year, and worldwide, the number is more than 640,000 cases per year.[1] Heavy smoking and heavy drinking have long been recognized as risk factors contributing to the development of oral cancers, but an increasing incidence of oral cancers appears to be associated with exposure to the human papillomavirus (HPV) through oral sex.

The prognosis for individuals diagnosed with oral cancer is generally good if the cancer is detected early. If detected in later stages, the prognosis declines. Moreover, the protocols for treatment of more advanced cancers can be much more traumatic for the patient – involving not only radiation and chemotherapies but also faciomaxillary reconstruction if portions of the mouth or throat need to be surgically removed.
