Oral, head and neck cancers are categorized by where they originate: either in squamous cells that line the head and neck or in the salivary glands. These cancers are then again subcategorized by the physical anatomy of where cancer resides. People should be aware of the possible warning signs so that they can contact a doctor as soon as possible. Successful treatment depends on the initial Diagnosis.
