Abstract

The trends were not considered materially biased by potential artefacts. The increasingly higher proportion of oropharyngeal SCC cancers is more likely explained by other factors, including an increasing high-risk HPV prevalence among recent cohorts. These results will likely have consequences on treatment and health care provision in the near future.
