Five- and ten-year survival of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck in northern Thailand: a multivariate analysis

Five- and ten-year survival of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck in northern Thailand:... Abstract Aim: To report 5- and 10-year overall survival (OS) outcomes of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and identify prognostic factors. Methods: Data on 2,095 patients at Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, Thailand between 2007 and 2014 were analysed using the Kaplan–Meyer method to estimate 5- and 10-year OS rates. Cox proportional hazard regression models were applied to assess the independent prognostic factors of survival. Results: 8·7% had hypopharyngeal cancer, 19·7% laryngeal, 53·3% oral cavity and 18·3% oropharyngeal. Two-thirds of the patients had locally advanced stage (III–IVB). Five- and ten-year OS rates were 30·1 and 22·8%, respectively. Conclusions: Cancer site, stage and age at diagnosis were associated with mortality, highlighting the importance of prevention and early detection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Radiotherapy in Practice Cambridge University Press
