Head and Neck Masses: Cancer

Cancerous masses spread to surrounding tissues and may be:
• Primary – they arise in the head or neck. Mostly caused by tobacco or alcohol use
• Secondary – they have spread from a primary tumour in another part of the body.

Cancers may be treated by a combination of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery.
