Abstract

In the period 1978-1986, 2907 cases of ear, sinonasal and throat (ENT) cancers were registered in the computer data base of the West Midlands Cancer Registry, Birmingham. These cases have been examined by site and subsite in this article. Squamous cell carcinomas continue to dominate ENT cancer with notable male predominance. Histology, male/female ratios and time trend analysis are reported for this group of cancers.
