Abstract

The major issue of the follow-up period is the early detection of recurrent and second tumors. Beside this, a team of specialized physicians and nurses should take care of the patient in terms of quality of life and rehabilitation. Follow-up appointments therefore should include physical examination with office-based endoscopy, ultrasonography, radiological imaging, dental evaluation, blood testing for TSH and EBV, voice and swallowing evaluation, pain management, QoL-Questionnaire, nutritional and psychological evaluation and treatment. Follow-up care should be managed by a multidisciplinary group of specialized and certified health care professionals in order to achieve the best results and outcome for the patients.
