Objectives: To determine the Qol of patient who had undergone H&NCa surgery and to find out the association between Qol after H&NCa surgery and selected variables. Method: Descriptive survey design. Results: Low Qol was observed in 45% subjects. Significant association was found between QoL with many symptoms. Conclusion: With advanced cancer treatment methods, the numbers of H&NCa survivors are increasing but their Qol would be affected significantly if these problems are not properly addressed.
