To describe comorbidity burden and nonclinical factors associated with all-cause mortality of sinonasal cancer in the United States.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Laryngoscope
Sinonasal malignancies are a rare subset of head and neck tumors, and surveillance strategies after definitive tumor treatment are often generalized from those for overall head and neck cancer outcome...
Sinonasal inverted papillomas (IP) are benign neoplasms with a propensity for local recurrence. Many risk factors are reported, with little consistency between studies. This study aimed to comprehensi...
Accurate assessment of life expectancy (LE) is critical to treatment decision making for men with prostate cancer. We sought to externally validate the Prostate Cancer Comorbidity Index (PCCI) for pre...
To characterize treatment delays in sinonasal cancer managed with surgery and adjuvant radiation and determine the associated impact on survival.
Pancreatic cancer, although infrequent, has a very poor prognosis, making it currently the fourth common causes of cancer mortality in most developed countries including the European Union (EU). Its i...
The purpose of this study was to determine whether providing patients with life expectancy (LE) information in the form of their Prostate Cancer Comorbidity Index (PCCI) scores impacted th...
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that 1)intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) or proton radiation therapy would result in improved local control rate and lowered toxic...
Comorbidity assessment in the field of HCT might be a burden on the medical team at the clinic or the research staff. This research study aims to explore and validate new methods, Claims-b...
In sinonasal inverted papilloma (SNIP) it is very challenging to discriminate between tumor and surrounding tissue. Local recurrence is a frequent phenomenon as it occurs in 16.5% of the c...
This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) regimen in elderly or high comorbidity burden patients who receive haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell ...
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.
Measure of the burden of disease using the disability-adjusted-life-year (DALY). This time-based measure combines years of life lost due to premature mortality and years of life lost due to time lived in states of less than full health. The metric was developed to assess the burden of disease consistently across diseases, risk factors and regions.
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
A specialty which deals with the interrelationship of physical, psychological, social, behavioral, and ethical aspects of cancer. Psycho-oncology examines the behavioral and psychosocial factors that may influence the course of the disease, cancer risk, prevention, and detection.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
