Summary

Head and neck cancer arises in cosmetically and functionally critical areas of the face. As a result of head and neck cancer and its treatment, head and neck cancer survivors face significant issues related to disfigurement, difficulty swallowing, and challenges speaking. Unfortunately, we do not have effective ways to treat body image concerns in head and neck cancer survivors. Therefore we developed BRIGHT (Building a Renewed ImaGe after Head & neck cancer Treatment), a new telemedicine intervention for head and neck cancer survivors with body image concerns. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of BRIGHT as a new treatment strategy for head and neck cancer survivors with body image concerns.

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the processes within the brain that can affect how head and neck cancer patients think and feel about how they look and feel after treatment. Participation in this study involves completing some questionnaires and undergoing one fMRI scan, which typically lasts one hour. It is hoped that the information gained from the study will help improve care for patients with head and neck cancer.
