We are pleased with the response and appreciate the expert comments from Singla and Goel[1] on our article titled, “Demography and pattern of care of patients with head-and-neck carcinoma: Experience from a tertiary care center in North India.”[2] The feedback added to our knowledge and understanding about this study and will enable us to carry out more precise research in the near future.

With growing awareness about cancer in the general population, there has been an increase in the willingness among patients to undergo treatment. We concede that treatment compliance in our study population might have been influenced by our institution's association with the prestigious Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, India. As rightly pointed out by Singla and Goel, the outcomes data from our study need to be evaluated prospectively. We acknowledge the need for the incorporation of tobacco cessation counseling with the help of a multidisciplinary team and strengthening our preventive oncology services to deal with head-and-neck cancers in this region.[3]
