Head and Neck Cancer

Cancers of the head and neck are generally taken to mean those of the larynx (voice box), tongue, the mouth, the lips and saliva glands, and the pharynx (throat).

These are relatively common in developing countries where smoking and alcohol abuse are problems, since they are closely associated with both smoking and alcohol use.

They can be devastating cancers, since treatment often results in deformity, and, if of the larynx, loss of the voice. To make matters worse, they are difficult to see and are often not picked up until they are well advanced.

Membership

Any person who is a registered medical or dental practitioner within the Republic of South Africa and who is a member of the South African Medical Association and non-SAMA members of allied disciplines, are eligible for membership.
