Loneliness is associated with a poor quality of life, mental illness, poor physical health, and premature mortality. Patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) are at risk of loneliness because of the effects of the disease and its treatment on important social interactive functions such as appearance, speech, facial expression, and eating. Patients treated for primary squamous cell HNC between January 2015 and December 2016 were surveyed in early 2019 using the University of Washington quality of life questionnaire version 4, the Cancer-related Loneliness Assessment Tool (C-LAT), and four nationally recommended indicator questions.
Oral diseases, including cancers, affect 3.5 billion people globally and remain largely untreated in low- to middle-income countries because of lack of resources. In Papua New Guinea (PNG), oral cancer has, for many decades, been identified as the most common cancer in men, but as the GLOBOCAN 2018 data are estimates extrapolated from surrounding countries, the real prevalence of this disease is not known. The PNG National Health Plan (2011 –2020) highlights the need to improve health care, but oral health is not identified as a priority.

Discussion: The goal of this trial is to determine the potential benefit of ALA-SFC in patients who undergo LDR-BT. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study investigating the potential clinical benefit of oral ALA-SFC after radiotherapy. More evidence from a further randomized controlled trial is needed to change the standard of care and lead to better post-radiotherapy management. Trial registration: This clinical trial was prospectively registered with the Japan Registry of Clinical Trials on 5 December 2019. The reference number is jRCTs051190077, nara0013 (Certified Review Board of Nara Medical Univer...
ConclusionOur study contributes to the descriptive prevalence of some known risk factors in Indian breast cancer patients.
We describe the case of a 65-year old female with severe oral lichenoid lesions occurring after treatment with pembrolizumab for bladder cancer. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a biopsy-proven oral erosive lichenoid reaction confirmed through direct immunofluorescence.

AbstractCoronavirus disease 2019 commonly designated as COVID-19 has been declared by World health Organisation (WHO) as a pandemic on 11 March 2020. ‘Lock down’ is found to be the only effective method to control this outbreak and due to the contagious nature of this disease most of the hospitals have stopped elective interventions. Cancer is a second leading cause of death globally and the bystander victims in this scenario are the patients with suspected and proven cancer. Head and neck cancer has a survival rate of 40% to 50% after definitive therapy and the delay in treatment for even 1-2 months may lead t...
