Impact of lymph node ratio on the survival of patients with hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma: a population-based analysis

Abstract

To analyze the impact of the lymph node ratio (LNR, ratio of metastatic to examined nodes) on the prognosis of hypopharyngeal cancer patients. SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results)-registered hypopharyngeal cancer patients with lymph node metastasis were evaluated using mult...read more

Head & Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a malignancy arising in the epithelia of the nasal cavity, pharynx, oral cavity, throat, larynx, or associated structures. Find the latest research on HNSCC here.

Laryngeal Neoplasms

Laryngeal Neoplasms occur in the Larynx and are typically associated with smoking and alcohol consumption. Discover the latest research on Laryngeal Neoplasms here.

Skin Cutaneous Melanoma

Cutaneous melanoma is a cancer of the pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes. While it has a 98 percent five-year survival rate when caught early, thousands of deaths are attributed to this cancer each year. Here is the latest research.

Lymphoid Neoplasms

Lymphoid neoplasms are derived from cells that frequently have features that recapitulate stages of normal b-, t-, and nk-cell differentiation and function. Lymphoid neoplasms include the following morphologic types: follicular center cell, lymphoblast (lymphocytic), immunoblast, plasma cell, and large granular lymphocyte (lgl). Here is the latest research on lymphoid neoplasms.

Carcinoma, Squamous Cell

Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.

Radiosensitizers

A radiosensitizer is an agent that makes tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is sometimes also known as a radiation sensitizer or radio-enhancer. Discover the latest research on radiosensitizers here.
