Head and Neck Squamous cell cancer tissue collection for animal xenograft studies

This study plans to learn more about head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC). The University of Colorado Cancer Center is working to develop tests that will allow earlier diagnosis and better treatments for HNSCC. The purpose of this study is to allow collection and banking (storing for later use) of research specimens for the study of HNSCC. Since standard treatment for most types of HNSCC includes surgery or a procedure to diagnosis or treat your cancer, consent is being requested for tissue samples to be collected at that time.
