Head and neck cancer can form in the throat (pharynx), oral cavity, voice box (larynx), paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity, and salivary glands.

As per the National Institute of Cancer, the significant causes of neck and head cancer includes alcohol and tobacco use, infection with cancer-causing human papillomavirus such as HPV type 16, using paan(betel squid) in the mouth, occupational exposure, radiation exposure, Epstein-Barr virus infection, ancestry, and underlying genetic disorders. The most common symptoms witnessed in case of head and neck cancer such as a lump in the neck and sore in the mouth, difficulty in swallowing, hoarseness in the voice, white or red patch on the gums, and tongue, pain in the neck and throat, trouble breathing and speaking, bleeding through the nose, frequent headaches, swelling under chin and numbness or paralysis of the muscles in the face.

Head and neck cancer is considered the seventh most common cancer globally and contributes to more than 8,00,000 new cases annually, as per the National library of medicine. Additionally, as per National Cancer Institute, treatments for head and neck cancer including of surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy. Further, research by National Cancer Institute provides information about the positive correlation between Human papillomavirus (HPV) and the chances of cure than those with HPV-negative tumors.

The covid-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the head and neck cancer market owing to various factors such as delayed diagnosis and treatment due to limited inpatient services, fear of contact with healthcare providers, and telemedical visits. As a result, the patients were admitted with extremely high-stage laryngeal and oropharyngeal cancers, requiring urgent tracheotomy.

Patients suffering from head and neck cancer are commonly treated with chemotherapy and radiation. Hair loss, speech difficulties, difficulty swallowing, reduced appetite, and skin changes are some of the widely witnessed side effects of surgery or radiation, and chemotherapy limits the market's growth. Further, the expensive diagnosis therapies and availability of well-developed cancer treatment clinics for head and neck cancer restricts the timely treatment of patients in low-income group countries are some of the other challenges faced by the market.
