This week marks Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week, a weeklong series of events to bring attention to these diseases. Oral, head and neck cancer broadly refers to cancers found anywhere in the head and neck, including the throat, larynx (or voice box), nose, sinus, and mouth.
Today, you’ll hear from Jonas de Souza, MD, a head and neck cancer specialist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center. He highlights research from the Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancers Symposium held earlier this year. In this podcast, Dr. de Souza specifically focuses on the progress made in the treatment of head, neck, and thyroid cancers.
