Head and Neck Cancer: Molecular Oncology Tumor Boards

This free case-based activity includes a crowd-sourced discussion of a 57-year-old female who presents with a 4 month history of increasing odontophagia, dysphagia, and changes in breathing while sleeping. One month from her existing diagnosis, the patient developed left-sided otalgia. Her physical exam now reveals a fixed, non-tender level II lymph node in her left neck. The patient is then referred to an otolaryngologist for further work up and evaluation.

Originally posted on a forum in the ASCO Connection, participants now have the opportunity to claim CME, completion, or participation certificates for completing this activity.
