Abstract:

Due to differences in demographics, course of disease, morphology, and survival rates, human papilloma virus-associated squamous cell carcinoma HPV-SCC and non-HPV associated squamous cell carcinoma, designated head and neck squamous cell carcinomaHNSCC, can be considered distinct clinico-pathologic entities. Over the past two decades, there has been an increase in incidence in HPV-SCC and it is expected to continue as the behaviors and habits associated with this disease continue to parallel a changing culture.
