Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to define the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck as seen at the Free University Hospital, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in the last six years, according to the latest revised classification system of the International Union against Cancer (UICC, 1982). In addition, male to female ratios, relative frequencies at the various sites, age distribution, incidence of second or third primary and the relationship of distant metastases to the nodal metastases and the T-stage of the primary lesion are reported. These incidences are compared with those in other countries and the major differences are discussed.
