I just attended to a symposium about developments in the early detection of head and neck cancer. It was exciting to learn about new research that holds promise for early detection of head and neck cancer using simple testing. The newly developed tests will be able to find cancer by simply testing the saliva. “biomarkers” which are biologic factors found within a tumor. It is hopeful that these tests will be available in the near future as they can be life saving.
