Head and neck cancer treatments can affect eating, speaking, breathing and personal appearance. What’s more, most of these types of cancer are linked to tobacco use. That’s why Atlantic Health System Cancer Care offers support resources to help head and neck cancer patients manage treatment side effects and quit smoking:
Head and Neck Cancer Support Group
Led by a professional, this group can provide participants with mutual support and encouragement.
