Understanding Head and Neck Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with head and neck cancer. This video will help you understand more about this type of cancer and how it affects the body. Cancer of the head and neck may develop in certain areas such as your sinuses, which are hollow spaces in the bones of your head around your nose, your nasal cavity, your mouth, also known as your oral cavity, your throat, also known as your pharynx, your voice box, also known as your larynx, and your salivary glands, which are organs that help you digest food. The cells lining most of these structures are called squamous cells. The most common type of head and neck cancer, called Squamous Cell Carcinoma, begins in these cells. Here, normal cells change into abnormal cells called cancer cells. Over time, these cells can grow out of control and form a cluster called a tumor. These tumors can grow and spread, destroying healthy tissue. Symptoms for head and neck cancer vary depending on the location of the cancer. In general, symptoms may include a sore that doesn't heal, a lump that doesn't go away, a sore throat that doesn't go away, pain or trouble swallowing, ear pain, hoarseness or a change in your voice, and trouble breathing. Other health problems may cause these symptoms. It's important to see your doctor to be sure. If you have head and neck cancer, your doctor will try to find out the extent of the disease, and if it has spread. This is called staging. The stages of cancer range from zero to four. A lower stage means less cancer growth. A higher stage means more cancer growth. The two main risk factors for head and neck cancer are alcohol and tobacco use, including smokeless tobacco. Other risk factors include infection with certain viruses such as human papillomavirus or Epstein-Barr virus, exposure to certain workplace substances and past radiation therapy of the head and neck. If you are dealing with a diagnosis of head and neck cancer, continue to talk to your doctor and your cancer care team.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."

Todd J. Kenyon
Attorney at Law
Minneapolis, MN

"Our practice involves medical negligence cases exclusively. We have six attorneys and one physician on staff. We have used Medical Legal Art's staff for every one of our cases over the past 12 years and have found their services to be extraordinary. The transformation of medical records into powerful graphic images has without fail been handled expertly, expeditiously and effectively translating into superb results for our clients, both in the courtroom and in settlement. Every case can benefit from their excellent work and we unqualifiedly recommend their services. They are the best!"
