Abstract

The survival rate in advanced cancer of the head and neck has remained at approximately 50%, and efforts are now directed towards reducing the impact of the disease and its treatment in terms of functioning and health related-quality of life (HR-QoL). Factors such as stage, site of disease and type of treatment all impact on HR-QoL, but it is unclear what additional factors influence HR-QoL.
