  Purpose

Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Comparing results of diagnostic procedures, such as esophagoscopy, done before and after radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying esophagoscopy in evaluating treatment in patients with stage I-IV head and neck cancer who are undergoing radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.

Ancillary studies

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the prevalence of esophageal pathology (any esophageal abnormality, specifically: esophagitis, stricture/web, infections, neoplasms) as identified by esophagoscopy in patients with HNCA before and 3 months following primary radiation and/or chemotherapy.

II. To assess the changes in self-reported dysphagia symptoms as measured by the Eating Assessment Tool.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo transnasal esophagoscopy at baseline and 3 months following completion of radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.
