AB - OBJECTIVES: To estimate the cumulative percentage of second primary tumors (SPTs) in head and neck (H&N) cancer patients and primary cancers in general Nicotine Dependence Center (NDC) population controls following tobacco dependence consultation seen between 1988 and 2001. Head and neck cancer is often associated with second primary neoplasms, the incidence varying from 5% to 30%. Glutathione S -transferases (GST) detoxify carcinogens in tobacco smoke, which plays a major role in development of not only squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) but also second primary malignancy (SPM) after index SCCHN. Last Revised: June 9, 2020 J Oral Pathol Med . Patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma appeared at increased risk for second primary malignant neoplasms, according to a population-based retrospective cohort study. BACKGROUND Survivors of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) are at an increased risk of developing second malignancies. Two of the 59 patients who used cannabis, 3.4 per cent, developed a second primary cancer compared to 23 of the 454 patients, 5.1 per cent, of the controls. Recently, computed tomography (CT) of the chest was shown to significantly decrease the risk of death due to bronchial carcinoma (BC) in a cohort of smokers whose risk of BC is increased but might be lower than that of patients previously … The expression of p53 protein in primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma was significantly predictive of shorter survival because of its association with earlier development of both tumor recurrence and second primary tumors.

AU - Elsayyad, Nagy. While the constant long-term risk for the head and neck cancer patient has been well established, efforts at prevention, early detection, and treatment have been somewhat futile. Treatment of local and locoregional recurrence or second head-and-neck (H&N) cancers after previous radiotherapy remains a challenge due to an increased risk of radiotherapy-related normal tissue toxicities and tumor radioresistance .It has been reported that up to 30% of patients receiving definitive chemoradiotherapy for unresectable H&N cancer develop … With improvements in locoregional control, the problem of second primary malignancies is rapidly being pushed to the forefront of head and neck oncology. Overview ... MDACC; 1989 PMID 2674075-- "Multiple primary cancer in patients with cancer of the head and neck: second cancer of the head and neck, esophagus, and lung." To provide a quantitative estimate of the survival impact, we conducted a population-based … The incidence of second primary cancer was very high in persons who had been heavy smokers and/or heavy drinkers before the occurrence of their primary cancer in the head and neck region. Multiple primary cancer in patients with cancer of the head and neck: second cancer of the head and neck, esophagus, and lung . The overall prevalence of multiple primary tumours is 15.2%. Y1 - 2015. Recent advances in genetic predisposition, … The most common second primary sites were head and neck district and lung (70, 31.5% and 67, 30.2%, respectively). T2 - A population-based analysis. ObjectiveMany head and neck cancers (HNCs) have genomic features seen in breast malignancy. Patients treated for squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC) carry a high risk of second primary malignancies (SPM). Warnakulasuriya KAAS, Robinson D, Evans H. Multiple primary tumours following head and neck cancer in southern England during 1961–98. Article PubMed Google Scholar Second primary malignancy (SPM) represents the leading long-term cause of mortality in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Regular follow-up care is very important after treatment for head and neck cancer to make sure that the cancer has not returned, or that a second primary (new) cancer has not developed. Head Neck 2016; 38 Suppl 1:E873. Methods Between January 2000 and June 2008, 39 patients with head and neck squamous-cell carcinoma (HNSCC) … The incidence of multiple primary tumors in this population can be as high as 27%. Patients 4, 6, 12, and 15 developed lung lesions long after initial therapy for HNSCC but soon after locoregional recurrence. 1989 Sep;17(3):467-76.) Purpose The purpose of the present study was to determine the rate of second primary head and neck cancer development among patients with a primary cancer diagnosed outside the head and neck region, to present the clinical characteristics of this population, and to determine whether any variables are associated with survival. In this study, the sequencing was performed using the Illumina system and Sanger sequencing was used to validate all identified mutations. Squamous cells are thin, flat cells found in tissues that form the surface of the skin and the lining of body cavities such as the mouth, hollow organs such as the uterus and blood … We analyzed primary and second primary tumors in HNC and identified 23 mutant verification only in second primary … Head and neck second primary cancer rates in the human papillomavirus era: A population-based analysis.

AU - Samuels, Michael A. With Hodgkin disease, the treatment of the disease which is often at a young age combined with a high survival rate is associated with a high risk of secondary cancers. Recurrences are the most common cause of treatment failure within the first 2 years of follow-up. 4 SPMs after HNSCC illustrate concepts of field cancerization, in which … Rennemo E, Zätterström U, Boysen M: Synchronous second primary tumors in 2,016 head and neck cancer patients: role of symptom-directed panendoscopy. Second primary lung cancer (SPLC) is generally of poor prognosis in patients presenting with head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy for palliative treatment in patients who have recurrent, refractory, or second primary head and neck cancer that cannot be treated with surgery or radiation therapy. A meta-analysis was performed on data from 25 studies reporting synchronous and metachronous second malignancies in head and neck cancer. Second primary malignancy (SPM) is the major long-term cause of patient mortality with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). These patients have a high risk of developing other cancers simultaneously or subsequently. This phenomenon forms an area to be addressed during posttreatment follow‐up. Re-treatment is associated with an increased risk of serious toxicity and impaired quality of life (QOL) with an uncertain survival advantage. Depending on the type of cancer, medical checkups could include exams of the stoma, if one has been created, and of the mouth, neck, and throat. We hypothesized that GSTM1 null, GSTT1 null, GSTP1 Ile105Val, and GSTP1 Ala114Val polymorphisms would individually and, more … Regular dental exams may also be necessary.

Purpose: To distinguish a metastasis from a second primary tumor in patients with a history of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and subsequent pulmonary squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS: A 1:1 matched pair design and a stratified Cox proportional hazard … Background. Second cancers following head and neck cancer (HNC) most often involve the esophagus and lung, yet the actual magnitude of impact of second primary esophageal or lung cancer on survival of HNC patients has not been well established, particularly by a large-scale epidemiological study. Second primary tumors (SPTs) are a common cause of reduced life expectancy in patients treated for head and neck cancer (HNC). The prevalence of synchronous second primaries in … People who have had head and neck cancer who are smokers, however, are at increased risk for a second primary cancer and for lung cancer. AU - Reis, Isildinha. Patients and healthcare providers must strongly consider and have a high clinical suspicion of the potential influence of SPMs on survival.
