Robert Haddad, MD
The recent news that Michael Douglas has been diagnosed with stage 4
throat cancer has raised public awareness of head and neck cancer. What
causes throat cancer and what are the symptoms? Are there ways to
prevent or reduce the risk of throat cancer? How is the human
papillomavirus (HPV) related to oral cancer?
On Thursday, Sept.16, at 5:00 p.m. ET, join Dr. Robert Haddad, clinical director of the Head and Neck Oncology Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, for a half-hour live Twitter chat to explore these and other issues.
People will need a Twitter account to be able to ask a question or
make a comment. Twitter is free and an account can be created by going
to twitter.com. However, a Twitter account is not needed for those who want to only follow the exchange between Dr. Haddad and others.
During the live Twitter chats, Dana-Farber will not be able to answer
questions about specific diagnoses or treatments. Participants are
asked to discuss questions about their medical conditions, treatment
options, or medications with their doctors.
Please note that all comments during the live Twitter chat are
publicly available and accessible on the Internet. Chat participants are
reminded to always consider how much personal information to share,
with the understanding that this information may be linked to a person's
