Head and neck cancer accounts for more than 50,000 cancer cases per year in the United States. The remarkable anatomic complexity within a small geometric confine warrants considerable attention to disease delineation and organs at risk. This section provides a comprehensive overview of head and neck subsites, including clinicopathologic spread in relation to anatomical structures and multimodality management. This section has been expanded to include updates in clinical staging as introduced by the American Joint Committee on Cancer, management of HPV-positive oropharynx cancer, approaches to cervical node management, and new information on systemic regimens in the setting of concurrent or sequential chemoradiation.
