Extract

In Reply We would like to thank Drs Webb and Briscoe for their interest in our manuscript on the incidence of suicide in patients with head and neck cancer.1 The intent of the manuscript was not only to highlight the high rate of suicide in these patients, but to show that suicide rates were associated with the involved subsite in the head and neck. We postulated that the higher suicide rate among patients with laryngeal and hypopharyngeal malignant diseases, for example, may be related to the poor quality of life associated with tumors of these subsites.
