    Head and Neck Cancers (Including Eye Cancer) Directory

    Head and neck cancers are cancers that start in mouth, nose, throat, or sinus areas. They do not include brain cancer. Head and neck cancers usually begin in the cells that make up the moist, thin tissue that lines the inside of the mouth, nose, and throat. Head and neck cancers are more common in men. Smoking and chewing tobacco raise your risk for this type of cancer, particularly if you drink alcohol. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how head and neck cancers (including eye cancer) develop, what the symptoms are, how to treat it, and much more.
