Summary : Background: Cancers of uppers aero-digestives tracts represent, in frequency, the 5th cancer in the french population. Most of them (about 70%) are diagnosed at an advanced stage (stage III or IV) while they are associated with a poor prog­nosis (only 40% five year survival). The objective of our study was to analyze the care pathway of patients with cancers of uppers aero-digestives tracts in order to target efforts to impro­ve the survival of these patients. Methods: It was a descriptive and retrospective study, on medical files, on the health care pathway of patients with cancers of uppers aero-digestives tracts cared in the Head and Neck surgery depart­ment of Val de Grâce in Paris and Percy in Clamart between January 2004 and December 2006. The patients were adults with squamous cell carcinoma of uppers aero-digestives tracts. Results: One hundred thirty-eight files of patients were analyzed. Fifty-five percent of patients were diagnosed at an advanced stage. On average patients have waited two months and twenty-one days before consulting a doctor for the first time. The time interval between the specialist consultation and the start of treatment was on average 7 weeks. The overall 5-year survival rate was 61%. Conclusion: Squamous cell carci­­­no­ma of uppers aero-digestives tracts remains serious and has a poor diagnosis, even in a population with a high social-cultural level. The long time interval before the first consulta­tion may be reduced by improving health education among the general practitioner (primary and secondary prevention), and by establishing health care public campaigns. This would allow earlier diagnosis, more conservative therapeutic opportunities and therefore a better prognosis.
