Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma of uppers aero-digestives tracts remains serious and has a poor diagnosis, even in a population with a high social-cultural level. The long time interval before the first consultation may be reduced by improving health education among the general practitioner (primary and secondary prevention), and by establishing health care public campaigns. This would allow earlier diagnosis, more conservative therapeutic opportunities and therefore a better prognosis.
