Head and neck cancer includes all the malignant tumors occurring on the head and neck -- including the mouth, nose, eyes and ears. It covers many types of cancer and the incidence varies for each site. For example, oral cavity cancer accounts for about 3 percent of all new cancers, but larynx cancer accounts for only about 1 percent in Minnesota.
