Charity information

The Head And Neck Cancer Foundation

We are a charity devoted to driving awareness for, and the adoption of, ground-breaking new technology for the treatment of head and neck cancer. Many cases can be caught early if people know what symptoms to look for. We strive to educate the public on how to identify the symptoms, and for these early cases of mouth cancer make them aware that they can request the pioneering Sentinel Node Biopsy technique, which can save over 70% of patients from enduring a neck dissection.

Founded 2015

  • Mission statement

    At the Head and Neck Cancer Foundation, we are working hard to build awareness of head and neck cancers amongst the public. We want everyone in the UK to know how to check themselves and know what a normal mouth looks like. Then they can quickly recognise anything that is abnormal and know what to do next.
    We are also driving awareness of Sentinel Node Biopsy within the medical industry, by providing training to a new wave of surgeons in order to reduce the impact of surgery on sufferers and enable them to get back to a normal life with minimal impact on a well-exposed area of the body.

    We are a charity devoted to driving awareness for, and the adoption of, ground-breaking head and neck cancer treatment. Our research aims to minimise the magnitude of surgery and the resulting aesthetical impact on patients.
