Taste and smell changes (TSCs) are common and may contribute to malnutrition. Research has previously focused on patients receiving chemotherapy (CT) or head and neck radiotherapy (RT). However, TSCs may occur pre-treatment, with other treatment modalities, and in cancer survivors. This review evaluates objective and subjective assessment of taste and smell, discusses the prevalence of TSCs in cancer, and reviews the clinical sequelae of TSCs in cancer patients.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Oxford University Press||Copyright (published version):||2017 the Authors||Keywords:||Taste and smell changes; Oncology; Cancer||DOI:||10.1093/annonc/mdx018||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
