HNCA understands that head and neck cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers, face many challenges during and after treatment. In this section, you will find a number of resources to help you find the support you need, manage side effects, regain health and wellness, and find inspiration to continue fighting. In order to provide the most helpful resources, we’d love your feedback. If there is a topic you think we should include on this page, please drop us a line at info@headandneck.org!

Research Initiative
  • The Cancer Experience Registry (CER) is a comprehensive online research initiative that asks about the patient and caregiver cancer experience. It is open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis as well as to informal caregivers who assist with their care. The Cancer Experience Registry covers topics ranging from emotional well-being, to financial issues, to diagnosis and treatment. The data collected through the CER provide unique insights that we share with academic, advocacy, and medical partners to increase the psychosocial body of cancer knowledge. Your experience is critical to our understanding, so share your story today!

Kristi believes dentists can be a resource for early detection by conducting a thorough mouth, jaw, and throat examination upon every visit. “While the dentists couldn’t have prevented cancer, they possibly could have been a great resource for early detection. This could have saved my husband from going through such grueling treatments.”Kristi Mason
