  • Objective Patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) often present with cervical lymph node metastasis. Occasionally the primary tumor site remains unknown even after thorough investigation. Management of such cases is problematic and may result in over-treatment and consequent increased morbidity. High risk HPV has been advocated recently as an important etiologic factor for a subset of head and neck SCC. These are believed to have a special predilection for the oropharyngeal… CONTINUE READING
