Radiation for Throat Cancer
 
10:07
In 2011 I went through treatment for stage IV throat cancer. It was in my left tonsil. It is a curable cancer but the treatment is brutal and the side effects can be life changing and permanent. I post this video so that those facing this treatment and their friends and family will know what one session of radiation is like. I went through 33 rounds of radiation and 3 rounds of chemo (Cisplatin). In this video the you see the first part where I am placed on the table (my feeding tube visible under my shirt) and the radiation mask snapped down. The techs leave the room and the next part is the daily x-ray to check my position and the alignment of the machine. At 7:38 the actual delivery of radiation begins with two arcs encompassing my neck. At 11:33 the machine stops in front of my face, directing a concentrated beam directly at the tumor through my mouth. Have questions about what to expect? Contact me through the comments and I'll be glad to tell you about my experience and survival. BTW I am also an RN.

General Principles of Head & Neck Cancer Management - Dr. Brian O'Sullivan
 
45:39
General Principles of Head & Neck Cancer Management Dr. Brian O'Sullivan MD The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto, Canada To approach H&N radiotherapy planning and delivery responsibly, it is important to understand all of the underlying principles of management, including a sound knowledge of disease behaviour, complex anatomic detail, normal tissue tolerance and assessment of patient performance. In this session, process issues will be discussed in the areas of multidisciplinary assessment, protocol requirements and compliance, and ongoing monitoring of patient outcomes. Evidence for the rationale and efficacy of current approaches with IMRT and IGRT will also be presented.

Head and Neck Cancer Survivor | Mark's Story
 
04:33
Mark found a lump in the neck and was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the neck. Mark did his research for the top- rated institutions in the country who treated Head and Neck Cancer. He chose to go to Penn Medicine. At Penn he met Dr. Weinstein, who recommended TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS). TORS, was invented at Penn is the world’s first minimally invasive surgery t techniques that enable Penn surgeons to remove benign and malignant tumors of the mouth and throat. Mark’s tumor was removed while preserving his ability to speak and swallow. Penn recommended Mark for Proton Therapy at the Roberts Proton Therapy Center. Proton therapy is a non–invasive, incredibly precise cancer treatment that uses a beam of protons moving at very high speeds to destroy the DNA of cancer cells. Today Mark is cancer-free.

Jean-Pascal Machiels underlines the importance of the EGFR target in head and neck cancer, as monoclonal antibodies against the EGFR target improve outcome. However, a limitation with anti-EGFR therapy exists, as a minority of patients will have objective response and the issue in head and neck cancer, compared to other cancers, is that there are no predictive biomarkers. He goes on to discuss the differences, at the molecular level, between HPV-positive and negative disease. The future is looking interesting for immunotherapy in head and neck cancer. http://www.esmo.org Video produced by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO)

Hard to Swallow- After Effects of Head & Neck Cancer
 
01:51
A cancer survivor, Michael Tartaro is happy he’s around to talk about it. “I had base of the tongue, head, and neck cancer. Stage four with tumors.” He immediately underwent intense treatment. “Radiation and heavy chemo for three months - they’d rather hit it quickly and hard,” says Tartaro. In years past, eradicating his cancer could have left Tartaro speechless. “If you go back 10 years ago, patients were getting more radical neck dissections. There was more accessory nerve damage. Radiation wasn’t quite as pin-pointed. Chemo drugs were a little bit different. So we had a full gamut of different side effects,” says Stacey Brill a speech therapist with Lee Memorial Health System. She provides therapy for oral cancer patients. Even with fewer surgeries performed today, life-saving treatments are almost always life-changing. “Eighty-five percent of this population does have a swallowing deficit to a varying degree.” Getting a head start on therapy can minimize aftereffects. Helping patients swallow and eat, returning them to their pre-cancer selves as quickly as possible. “A lot of them do have aspiration risks. If we can go ahead and start their therapy at that point in time, and start working with the muscles, we get better and faster outcomes.” To counteract scarring and tissue damage, Tartaro undergoes electrical stimulation. It reduces his risk of choking and makes it easier to eat by retraining his swallowing muscles. “Curing the cancer is amazingly good. But if you don’t have the therapy to follow up, I mean if I couldn’t eat anymore, you start to get the quality of life issues, serious quality of life issues,” says Tartaro. With specialized care, head and neck cancer patients can face the future in the fullest sense.

Targeted Therapy for Head and Neck Cancer and Its Benefits| Max Hospitals
 
01:10
In this video, Dr Vikas Goswami, (Medical Oncology) Senior Consultant at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali explains Targeted Therapy and how it is beneficial for Head and Neck Cancer. He explains that the treatment of advanced Head and Neck Cancer is no more limited to debilitating chemotherapy. In today’s era, we have specialised medication known as targeted medicines which are monoclonal antibodies and another famous option immunotherapy that helps to increase body’s immunity to fight against cancer. They can be given alone or they can be combined with chemotherapy to enhance the effect. According to him, the advantage of targeted medicine is that they are fairly well – tolerable. So, the patient can take them for a fairly long time, without affecting the quality of his life. The backbone of targeted medicine is a lab which is equipped to diagnose the genetic expression profiling. We at Max have one of the best equipment to diagnose this genetic profiling.

6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer
 
06:45
Like, Comment, Subscribe and invite all your friends to see our videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUOF1_1_fY50PVN0TtItbDQ?sub_confirmation=1 6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer: 1. Sore throat A sore throat is rarely worth worrying about — after all, it can be caused by a range of fairly harmless afflictions, from over-exerting the voice muscles to seasonal allergies to the common cold. Generally speaking, a sore throat is either very temporary or just the first sign that a head cold is setting in. However, a sore throat could indicate that an individual is developing throat cancer. While it can be difficult to distinguish between a common cold and throat cancer, in the latter case the pain will not go away after a few days or even weeks. In essence, if you develop a painful sore throat without any of the other symptoms of a head cold, and the sore throat doesn’t go away after a week or so, then it may be time to speak to a doctor about a thorough examination. 2. Mouth pain Like many of the other symptoms on this list, mouth pain doesn’t necessarily mean there’s anything to worry about. After all, it can be caused by many things, from burning your tongue on hot food to using a new toothbrush. Of course, mouth pain can also be the result of poor oral hygiene, such as failing to brush, floss or rinse on a regular basis. But this pain should subside in time, particularly if the afflicted individual is taking care with their oral hygiene. And there are other indicators that something more serious is up, including red and white patches on the gums, tongue, or mouth lining. Bleeding gums and pain in the jaw could also be indicators that the mouth pain one is feeling is more serious and could be linked to head and neck cancer. If you experience a few of these symptoms, or your mouth pain doesn’t subside after a few days, it would be wise to speak with your doctor and/or dentist about the issue. 3. Difficulty talking Anyone with a serious throat infection or bad head cold will tell you that these relatively harmless afflictions can make it rather difficult to speak. Colds and infections of the throat can make it difficult. In most cases this pain will subside after a few days or a week or two. If the pain lasts, however, it could be a sign that there is a more serious problem affecting the throat, including the pharynx. Persistent pain in the throat making it difficult to speak should be considered serious and should be followed by a thorough examination by a physician to rule out throat cancer. 4. Trouble swallowing There are a few health conditions that can make it difficult to swallow, including moderately serious issues like strep throat. But even the common cold can present an individual with a sore throat that makes it difficult to swallow. However, if this pain persists — and there are none of the other symptoms that accompany the typical head cold, such as a cough and stuffy nose — then it’s a good idea to visit a doctor to determine the cause of the issue. It could simply be irritated as a result of an infection or seasonal allergies, but it may also be linked to throat cancer. If it’s the latter, it’s better to catch the problem early, thereby giving medical specialists more time to fight the disease. 5. Sinus pain Sinus pain is most often associated with seasonal allergies or the common cold. However, it can also be the result of structural issues affecting the nose and sinuses; in other words, if there are blockages in the nose, it could lead to plugged sinuses that don’t clear and lead to significant sinus pain and headaches. Additionally, dryness can cause the nose to feel stuffy and may even result in nose bleeds. The onset of sinus pain should be met with a visit to a physician who can help you determine if the problem is related to allergies, blockages, general dryness, or something more serious, such as nose cancer. If the problem does not respond to medications, such as antibiotics, then there’s an increased chance that it is a more serious issue. 6. Pain or numbness caused by inflammation The emergence of cancer in the head and neck area can lead to significant inflammation. If there’s a serious problem developing, an individual may notice swelling in their jaw or in the area just below their chin. The feeling of swelling — which is often accompanied by pain — in this part of the head could be the result of cancer emerging in the salivary glands. Inflammation resulting from the development of head and neck cancer can also lead to feelings of numbness or paralysis in the face muscles; this can also be accompanied by pain. If this pain lasts for more than a few days, it’s crucial the individual contact their physician right away to carry out an examination of the head and neck area. 6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer By styh

Insights into Cancer: Head and Neck Cancers
 
01:44:08
Head and neck cancers and cancers of the throat used to be diseases seen only in elderly patients but are on the rise in younger and healthier patients. There has been a rise in the number of these cancers, particularly those caused by particular forms of the human papilloma virus which, when found early, are highly treatable. Advances in treatment have focused on preserving function and quality of life. The treatments, however, often require a multi-disciplinary approach using a combination of modalities. Dr. Abie Mendelson will discuss the many advances in robotic surgery. Dr. Allen Chen will talk about radiation treatment and the importance of preserving function. Dr. Deborah Jean Lee Wong will explore the chemotherapeutic agents that help sensitize the tumors to radiation treatments. These treatments, even in their best form, take a toll on the physical well-being of the patient and often require considerable symptom management. And Carolyn Katzin, an Integrative Specialist with specialized training in nutrition, addresses how to manage nausea, swallowing, eating and maintenance of body weight. The information presented will assist patients and families in making decisions, understanding treatments and preserving well-being into survivorship.

Head & Neck Cancer - Symptoms and Signs
 
10:12
Head and neck cancer is strongly associated with certain environmental and lifestyle risk factors, including tobacco smoking, alcohol consumption, UV light, particular chemicals used in certain workplaces, and certain strains of viruses, such as human papillomavirus. [2] These cancers are frequently aggressive in their biologic behavior; patients with these types of cancer are at a higher risk of developing another cancer in the head and neck area.[2] Head and neck cancer is highly curable if detected early, usually through surgery, but radiation therapy may also play an important role, while chemotherapy is often ineffective.

Oral and Neck Cancer: Symptoms and Treatments | Segment 2 | Health 1st | Dr. Nidhi Patni

Oral cancer appears as a growth or sore in the mouth that does not go away. Oral cancer, which includes cancers of the lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, and pharynx (throat), can be life threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. Cancers that are known collectively as head and neck cancers usually begin in the squamous cells that line the moist, mucosal surfaces inside the head and neck (for example, inside the mouth, the nose, and the throat).  Head and neck cancers can also begin in the salivary glands, but salivary gland cancers are relatively uncommon. Today First India News welcomes Dr. Nidhi Patni, a cancer specialist who will brief our viewers about the symptoms, signs, causes and treatments of both these cancers. Have a look.

The side effects and the long term effects that it could have on your well-being were staggering. I would not be able to talk at all.

6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer
 
07:27
6 Symptoms of Head and Neck Cancer: 1. Sore throat A sore throat is rarely worth worrying about — after all, it can be caused by a range of fairly harmless afflictions, from over-exerting the voice muscles to seasonal allergies to the common cold. Generally speaking, a sore throat is either very temporary or just the first sign that a head cold is setting in. However, a sore throat could indicate that an individual is developing throat cancer. While it can be difficult to distinguish between a common cold and throat cancer, in the latter case the pain will not go away after a few days or even weeks. In essence, if you develop a painful sore throat without any of the other symptoms of a head cold, and the sore throat doesn’t go away after a week or so, then it may be time to speak to a doctor about a thorough examination. 2. Mouth pain Like many of the other symptoms on this list, mouth pain doesn’t necessarily mean there’s anything to worry about. After all, it can be caused by many things, from burning your tongue on hot food to using a new toothbrush. Of course, mouth pain can also be the result of poor oral hygiene, such as failing to brush, floss or rinse on a regular basis. But this pain should subside in time, particularly if the afflicted individual is taking care with their oral hygiene. And there are other indicators that something more serious is up, including red and white patches on the gums, tongue, or mouth lining. Bleeding gums and pain in the jaw could also be indicators that the mouth pain one is feeling is more serious and could be linked to head and neck cancer. If you experience a few of these symptoms, or your mouth pain doesn’t subside after a few days, it would be wise to speak with your doctor and/or dentist about the issue. 3. Difficulty talking Anyone with a serious throat infection or bad head cold will tell you that these relatively harmless afflictions can make it rather difficult to speak. Colds and infections of the throat can make it difficult. In most cases this pain will subside after a few days or a week or two. If the pain lasts, however, it could be a sign that there is a more serious problem affecting the throat, including the pharynx. Persistent pain in the throat making it difficult to speak should be considered serious and should be followed by a thorough examination by a physician to rule out throat cancer. 4. Trouble swallowing There are a few health conditions that can make it difficult to swallow, including moderately serious issues like strep throat. But even the common cold can present an individual with a sore throat that makes it difficult to swallow. However, if this pain persists — and there are none of the other symptoms that accompany the typical head cold, such as a cough and stuffy nose — then it’s a good idea to visit a doctor to determine the cause of the issue. It could simply be irritated as a result of an infection or seasonal allergies, but it may also be linked to throat cancer. If it’s the latter, it’s better to catch the problem early, thereby giving medical specialists more time to fight the disease. 5. Sinus pain Sinus pain is most often associated with seasonal allergies or the common cold. However, it can also be the result of structural issues affecting the nose and sinuses; in other words, if there are blockages in the nose, it could lead to plugged sinuses that don’t clear and lead to significant sinus pain and headaches. Additionally, dryness can cause the nose to feel stuffy and may even result in nose bleeds. The onset of sinus pain should be met with a visit to a physician who can help you determine if the problem is related to allergies, blockages, general dryness, or something more serious, such as nose cancer. If the problem does not respond to medications, such as antibiotics, then there’s an increased chance that it is a more serious issue. 6. Pain or numbness caused by inflammation The emergence of cancer in the head and neck area can lead to significant inflammation. If there’s a serious problem developing, an individual may notice swelling in their jaw or in the area just below their chin. The feeling of swelling — which is often accompanied by pain — in this part of the head could be the result of cancer emerging in the salivary glands. Inflammation resulting from the development of head and neck cancer can also lead to feelings of numbness or paralysis in the face muscles; this can also be accompanied by pain. If this pain lasts for more than a few days, it’s crucial the individual contact their physician right away to carry out an examination of the head and neck area.
