Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the effectiveness of using low-intensity laser compared with placebo as preventive and therapeutic intervention of oral mucositis induced by radiation therapy and chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the effectiveness of using low level laser compared with placebo in the prevention of onset of oral mucositis induced by treatment of head and neck QRT. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  2. Evaluate the effectiveness of the use of low laser intensity versus placebo in improving the healing of oral mucositis induced by treatment of head and neck QRT. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  3. Evaluate the effectiveness of using low level laser compared with placebo in reducing pain during and after cancer treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  4. Evaluate the effectiveness of using low level laser compared with placebo in analgesic use during and after cancer treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  5. Assess the intervention tolerance and side effects of it. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
