Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, HNSCC, has high morbidity and mortality. Even in America, more than 1/2 to 2/3 patients have been diagnosed at advanced stage. So, it’s urgent to find ways to diagnose HNSCC earlier and foresee the curative effect. With the achievement of Next-Generation Sequencing, researchers are trying to develop early diagnostic technology from a new perspective, such as personal genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and other related personal information. Here we reviewed the recent research in early diagnosis of HNSCC.
