  • Slide 1 - The Epidemiology of Head and Neck Cancer Scott Langevin, MHA CT(ASCP) Doctoral Candidate June 5, 2009
  • Slide 2 - Anatomy of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract (UADT) Head & neck cancer refers to cancers of the UADT: Oral Cavity Pharynx Hypopharynx Larynx Nasopharynx Nasal cavity Paranasal sinuses Source: http://utahhealthsciences.net/customer/image_gallery/332/ENT_drawing.jpg
  • Slide 3 - Epidemiology Head and neck cancer in the US, 2008: 47,560 new cases (3.3% of US cancers) 9th most common cancer 11,260 deaths (2% of US cancer deaths) 14th most common cause of cancer death Globally, head and neck cancer results in: 563,826 new cases (5.2% of world cancers) 301,408 deaths (4.5% of world cancer deaths
  • Slide 4 - Survival 60% overall 5-year survival Virtually unchanged over past 3 decades Varies by site Source: Carvalho et al. Trends in incidence and prognosis for head and neck cancer in the United States: a site specific analysis of the SEER database. 2005.
  • Slide 5 - Stage at diagnosis by site
  • Slide 6 - Common Types of Head & Neck Cancer Head and neck cancer is a heterogeneous category of malignancies 90-93% are head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (SCCHN) 3-6% are nasopharyngeal carcinomas (NPC) 1-3% are salivary cancers
  • Slide 7 - Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN)
  • Slide 8 - Clinical Presentation & Treatment Currently no proven screening method except visual examination Symptoms: hoarseness, dysphagia, odynophagia, ulcerations, bleeding 1st line treatment modalities: Early stage: surgery (preferred) or radiation Advanced stage: typically surgery + chemoradiation Currently Cisplatin is treatment of choice, alone or in combination EGFR inhibitors are in trials (cetuximab)
  • Slide 9 - Epidemiology 93% of head and neck cancers are SCCHN Median age at diagnosis = 62 years Although, incidence in adults < 45 increasing Particularly for base of tongue and tonsillar SCC Men are 2.78 times as likely to develop SCCHN 2.59 times as likely to die from it Higher incidence in African-Americans Poorer 5-year survival (16-20% lower)
  • Slide 10 - Prognostic Indicators TNM stage (higher = worse) Cervical nodal involvement is one of the strongest predictors (50% reduction in survival) 2/3 SCCHN patients present with cervical mets 10% present with distant mets Extracapsular spread (ECS) further reduces survival Other predictors Nodal burden Perineural invasion Histologic grade Extent of necrosis Positive tumor margins
  • Slide 11 - Recurrence and Second Primaries > 50% of patients with locally advanced SCCHN experience recurrence within 2 years 2nd primaries occur in 15% of SCCHN patients at a rate of 3-5% per year Tumor recurrence or development of a second primary is a major reason for treatment failure and adversely impacts long-term survival
  • Slide 12 - Tobacco IARC classifies cigarette smoking as a Group 1 carcinogen and a causal factor for SCCHN Linear dose-response for smoking & SCCHN Duration > intensity, although both matter 3- to 10-fold increase in risk for smokers vs. non-smokers 5- to 25-fold increase in risk for heavy smokers vs non-smokers Other forms of tobacco are also associated with SCCHN (pipe, cigar, chew) Tobacco use also associated with 2nd primary SCCHN
  • Slide 13 - Source: Sturgis et al. Cancer. 2007. 110(7): 1429-35
  • Slide 14 - Carcinogenic Effect of Tobacco > 60 carcinogens identified in tobacco smoke Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are most potent in burnt tobacco Nitrosamines and their metabolites are most potent in smokeless tobacco Main effect is via DNA adduct formation -> mutations
  • Slide 15 - Alcohol (EtOH) IARC classifies consumption of alcoholic beverages as causal for SCCHN Contributive factor in ~75% of SCCHN Dose-response effect 50 g EtOH/day is associated w/ 2- to 3-fold increased risk relative to non-drinkers Heavy drinkers (> 100 g/day) = 4- to 6.5-fold increase compared w/ non-drinkers Also associated w/ 2nd primary SCCHN
  • Slide 16 - Carcinogenic Effect of EtOH Main effect derived from acetaldehyde, the primary metabolite Forms DNA adducts and interferes w/ DNA synthesis and repair High levels of acetaldehyde in saliva of alcoholics w/ SCCHN EtOH metabolized by bacterial enzymes Poor oral health = increased acetaldehyde levels
  • Slide 17 - Cigarette & EtOH Synergy There is an interaction between EtOH and smoking, as it relates to SCCHN The combined effect is multiplicative of the individual effects alone Combined use accounts for 73% of SCCHN EtOH acts as a solvent for tobacco carcinogens Smoking results in a shift in oral flora leading to increased acetaldehyde concentrations
  • Slide 18 - Human Papillomavirus (HPV) 25% of SCCHN associated w/ HPV 45-60% of oropharyngeal tumors, especially palatine and lingual tonsils In contrast, 10% HPV+ in normal OP mucosa 90-95% of HPV+ tumors are HPV16+ HPV positive tumors represent a distinct clinical subset of tumors Patients are younger, less likely to smoke/drink Tumors are more likely basaloid and poorly diff Better prognosis
  • Slide 19 - HPV Oncogenic Effect Primarily stems from action of E6 & E7 viral oncoproteins E6 binds and inactivates p53 tumor suppressor Loss of p53 mediated apoptosis E7 binds and inactivates pRb tumor suppressor Loss of G1-S phase checkpoint p16 overexpression is a surrogate marker for HPV-mediated SCCHN
  • Slide 20 - ppt slide no 20 content not found
  • Slide 21 - Other Risk Factors Environmental/Occupational Indoor air pollution Wood smoke or heating/cooking with fossil fuels Chronic second-hand tobacco smoke exposure 1.5- to 5-fold increase in risk Metal working Exposure to toxins during mustard gas production Diet High in animal fat, low in fruits and vegetables associated w/ increased risk of SCCHN Low folate intake may also be associated Gastroesophageal reflux
  • Slide 22 - Field Cancerization The epithelium is chronically exposed to environmental carcinogens Particularly true of smokers/drinkers Mutations that confer a growth/survival advantage are clonally selected Gradually replace normal epithelium New mutations occur within these fields giving rise to subclones; eventually can become malignant Can give rise to distinct but clonally related tumors Evidenced by mutations/alterations in “negative” margins This helps explain high recurrence/second primary rate of SCCHN
  • Slide 23 - Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC)
  • Slide 24 - Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC) Arise from the epithelial lining of the nasal cavity/nasopharynx Results from the interplay of environmental, genetic and viral risk factors 70-75% present with ear & nasal symptoms 75% present with painless, enlarged cervical nodes
  • Slide 25 - Treatment Radiation or chemoradiation is typically the 1st line of therapy NPC is radiosensitive Difficult to operate on nasopharynx thus surgery is not generally used as 1st line therapy for primary tumor Surgery is used to remove cervical nodes with metastatic disease
  • Slide 26 - NPC Classification WHO classifies NPC into 3 types: Keratinizing SCC (type I) Believed to be of a distinct etiology from types II & III Dominant type in low incident regions 39.4% of US NPC Non-keratinizing SCC (type II) 5% of high-incident regions 25.0% of US NPC Undifferentiated SCC (type III) 95% of high incident regions 14.0% of US NPC * 21.6% of US NPC are diagnosed as Carcinoma, NOS
  • Slide 27 - Incidence & Mortality 80,000 cases with 50,000 deaths annually < 1 per 100,000/year incidence 23rd most common cancer in the world 2-3 fold higher risk for males:females Broad racial/ethnic and geographic variation 4th most common cancer in Hong Kong Highest incidence in Asian, N African/Mid east, and Arctic populations
  • Slide 28 - ppt slide no 28 content not found
  • Slide 29 - ppt slide no 29 content not found
  • Slide 30 - Migrant Studies After migration, risk remains high Chinese in US have 10-20 fold increased risk compared to US Whites and Blacks However, Chinese immigrants have ½ the risk of their counterparts in China Conversely, Whites born in China or Philippines have an increased risk for NPC compared with US Suggests both environmental and genetic components
  • Slide 31 - US incidence by age Hong Kong incidence by age Monotonic increase with age Secondary peak from 55-59 yo Peak age at 50-59 yo NPC Incidence and Age Source: Chang et al. Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2008;15(10):1765-77
  • Slide 32 - NPC Prognosis Overall 5-year survival of 65% (US) Local: 80-90% Regional: 50-70% Advanced: poor Varies by type: Undifferentiated (type III) has best prognosis due to high radiosensitivity Keratinizing (type I) have worst prognosis more radioresistant
  • Slide 33 - Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) & NPC Member of the herpesvirus family Transmitted chiefly via saliva Primarily targets B lymphocytes but also infects oropharyngeal tissue EBV DNA detected in ~100% of type II and III NPC Type I is not as consistent Also detected in NP dysplasia
  • Slide 34 - EBV Prevalence > 90% of the world population is EBV seropositive (mostly latent infection) Geographic variability in when infection occurs Hong Kong: 80% of kids infected by age 6 ~100% by age 10 US: 50% of kids infected by age 5 95% of adults infected by age 40 Tends to occur earlier in developing countries Likely due to crowding and less hygienic conditions 30-50% adults develop mononucleosis after primary infection Usually latent in children
  • Slide 35 - EBV & NPC Early-life EBV infection increases risk EBV appears to be a necessary but insufficient cause of cancer Most people are infected; only a small minority get the disease EBV most likely interacts with genetic and environmental risk factors in NP carcinogenesis Environment Genetics NPC EBV
  • Slide 36 - Salt-Preserved Fish & Meat Strongest non-viral risk factor (especially fish) Associated with type II & III Weekly consumption: 1.4-3.2 fold increased risk Daily consumption: 1.8-7.5 fold increased risk Childhood exposure increases risk > adult Traditional weaning food in China Salt is an ineffective preservative Partial putrification Contains: Nitrosamines (also found in tobacco) Bacterial mutagens Genotoxins EBV reactivating compounds
  • Slide 37 - Smoking 2-6 fold increased risk of NPC Particularly true for Type I 2/3 of Type I attributable to smoking IARC classifies smoking as a Group I carcinogen Sufficient causal evidence for NPC
  • Slide 38 - Occupational Exposures Nasal cavity is the primary initial site of fume exposure Difficult to study due to (relatively) rare exposures Occupational exposures associated with NPC: Formalin 2-4 fold increase in risk Although not consistent across all studies Supported by evidence from animal studies Heat/combustion exposures Wood dust Chlorophenols
  • Slide 39 - Other Risk Factors Fruit & vegetable consumption (protective) Prior hx of chronic ENT or respiratory infection 2-fold increase in risk Family hx of NPC 4-10 fold increased risk for 1st degree relative hx Some HLA and xenobiotic metabolism alleles have been associated with NPC
  • Slide 40 - Salivary Gland Cancers
  • Slide 41 - Salivary Gland Cancers 1-3% of head and neck cancers Incidence: 2 per 100,000 people/yr Incidence is rising in US Mean age is 64 yo 2/3 occur in people > 55, although occur at all ages Heterogeneous group of malignancies WHO lists 18 histologies
  • Slide 42 - Site of Origin Major salivary glands: 95% of cancers 80% occur in the parotid 20% of parotid tumors are malignant 10% occur in the submandibular gland > 50% are of submandibular tumors are malignant 5% occur in the sublingual glands > 50% of sublingual tumors are malignant Minor salivary glands Cancers mostly occur in the oral cavity, nasopharynx or nasal cavity
  • Slide 43 - Clinical Presentation & Treatment Present as fixed, painless lumps or swelling, with trismus, or facial nerve weakness May present with or without lymphadenopathy Surgery is the primary treatment modality May be combined with radiation Stage and grade correlate well with prognosis After primary treatment, 50% experience local, regional, or distant mets
  • Slide 44 - 5-year Survival by Stage at Diagnosis
  • Slide 45 - Salivary Gland Cancers Major risk factors: Radiation Mixed results for occupational exposures Because it is relatively rare, there are few epidemiologic studies available with adequate statistical power to identify associations
  • Slide 46 - Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma (MEC) Most common: 30-35% of salivary tumors Usually involves major salivary glands 3:2 female:male ratio Mean age of diagnosis is in 5th decade Occurs at all ages Most common salivary malignancy in children
  • Slide 47 - MEC Prognosis 30-70% present with nodal involvement 10-20% present with distant mets Grade correlates well with prognosis High grade: < 50% 5-year survival Low grade: 95% 5-year survival Recurrences are mostly locoregional but can metastasize (lung, bone)
  • Slide 48 - Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) 2nd most common salivary cancer Occurs in both major and minor glands Most common minor salivary malignancy 3:2 female:male ratio 4th – 6th decade is the peak occurance But occurs at all ages
  • Slide 49 - ACC Prognosis Patients initially do well but do poorly long term 5-year survival = 89% 15 year survival = 40% Local control w/ surgery & radiation = 85% Tends to recur up to several years later as systemic mets 30-50% experience distant mets Rarely mets to regional lymph nodes Often associated with perineural invasion
  • Slide 50 - Adenocarcinomas Acinic cell carcinoma Most occur in the parotid Generally slow growing Usually low grade but depth of invasion into adjacent tissue is a better predictor of prognosis Polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma Occurs in minor glands; good prognosis Adenocarcinoma, NOS Poor 5-year survival (< 50%)
  • Slide 51 - Rare Adenocarcinomas Typically low grade (good prognosis): Basal cell adenocarcinoma Clear cell adenocarcinoma Cystadenocarcinoma Sebaceous adenocarcinoma Mucinous adenocarcinoma Typically high grade (poor prognosis) Oncocytic adenocarcinoma Salivary duct carcinoma
  • Slide 52 - Malignant Mixed Tumors Tend to occur in the major glands Prognosis depends upon grade Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma Account for the majority of MMTs Carcinosarcomas Metastasizing mixed tumor very, very rare
  • Slide 53 - Other Salivary Malignancies Squamous cell carcinoma Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma Anaplastic small cell Minor glands; quick growing Undifferentiated carcinoma (poor outcome) Large cell undifferentiated Lymphoepithelial carcinoma Higher incidence in Inuits
