A squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsils is an aggressive and metastatic tumor that arises from the epithelial cells of the tonsils. The epithelium is the cellular covering of all of the internal and external surfaces of the body, protecting the organs, inner cavities and outer surfaces of the body in a continuous layer of multi-layered tissue. The incidence significantly increased during 1983 to 2002 predominantly in developed countries and at younger ages. These results underscore a potential role for HPV infection on increasing Tonsil Cancer incidence, particularly among menC in most parts of the world, underscoring the needfor prevention strategies targeted toward tobacco and alcohol use.
The cancer treatment options available in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are radiotherapy andchemotherapy. If the cancerous tumor is highly localised to the tonsils or head and neck region, then the tonsil cancer treatment of choice is radiotherapy and is very effective. More advanced tonsil cancer will require systemic cancer treatment with chemotherapy, but may also include radiotherapy as part of the cancer treatment regime. New techniques introduced to reduce complications, making Tonsil cancer a safer operation for more people than ever before. Further research is being conducted to determine the best surveillance interval to monitor these cysts.
