The Surveillance Epidemiology End Results 9 database showed that 1,603 patients younger than age 45 years received a diagnosis of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma from 1973 to 2009, according to a research group led by Farzan Siddiqui, M.D., Ph.D., of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.
