A review of the table of contents of the program for the fourth International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer permits one to conclude that there is high energy in virtually every aspect of either the diagnosis or therapy concerning head and neck cancer. There is, in addition, an emerging interest (in fact, emphasis) on a more global restitution of the head and neck cancer patient, such that rehabilitation, both physical and emotional, as well as a greater acceptance of the benefits of less orthodox methods for treatment can be seen affecting outcomes.
