Head and neck risk factors depend on location.

  • Oral Cavity (Mouth): Risk factors include tobacco use, alcohol use, sun exposure, and possibly human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
  • Salivary Glands: Risk factors include radiation therapy or diagnostic X-rays.
  • Paranasal Sinuses and Nasal Cavity: Risk factors include inhalation of certain industrial elements (like wood or nickel dust) and possibly tobacco or alcohol use.
  • Nasopharynx: Risk factors include work-related exposure to wood dust, consuming certain salted foods or preservatives, and the Epstein-Barr virus. It is also worth noting that those of Asian ancestry (part Chinese) appear to develop Nasopharynx cancer more easily than the general population.
  • Oropharynx: Risk factors include tobacco use, alcohol use, poor oral hygiene, and possibly HPV.
  • Larynx:(Voicebox) Risk factors include tobacco use, alcohol use, and exposure to airborne asbestos (especially in the work environment).
