Where this mouth and oropharyngeal cancer information comes from
On this page are the major sources of information that we used to put together the mouth and oropharyngeal cancer section.
Cancer specialists and surgeons who specialise in treating cancer check all our information. The names of our specialist reviewers are at the end of this list. We also try to find patients to review all our sections. If you have had a head and neck cancer, live in the UK, and would like to become a patient reviewer, you can write to us by clicking on contact us.
