Cancers of Head and neck are treated with combination of Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy. Although results of therapy are quite good but side effects of therapy are many and bothering so much so that many patients fail to complete the course. During counseling the Radio-oncologist explains all side effects for the sake of education but that creates a lot of scare and confusion in the mind of the patient. The consultant does not define clearly as to chronology of side effects. This article aims to present a firsthand account of various effects and side effects of therapy in chronological manner since the patient himself is a physician.
