In brief: Aggressive
Most head and neck cancer are relatively aggressive.
They can cause symptoms earl and if not treated early can lead to significant decrements in quality of life and a significantly shortened life span. In general any cancer should be considered life threatening regardless of whether it grows fast or slow; it's ability to spread is what makes it dangerous.
