In brief: Head and neck ca

Especially in oral cancer- the incidence of hpv related oral cancer is increasing and now becoming more common- especially at younger age population- I am talking about age of 30's-40's.
The usual head and neck cancer that is associated with alcohol and cigarette smoking occurs more commonly at older age between 55-70 year old. I think, the incidence is pretty much the same as here in the usa.
