    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to illustrate how patients radiated against head and neck cancer, experience their oral health after ending radiotherapy. The study is qualitative and considers interviews with eight informants. The interviews were conducted using an interview guide. The interviews were recorded on a tape recorder and lasted about 10-20 minutes. The interview data were then analysed using a qualitative content analysis. The results of this study show that a majority of the respondents experience their oral health negatively after ending radiotherapy; these are mentioned in physical effect and mental limitation. The informants experienced pain and dry mouth after completing radiotherapy. The results also showed that they had trouble eating, including swallowing and chewing difficult and that they were forced to make dietary changes. The informants experienced generally it was hard to eat at large surroundings because the fear of choking occurred. Radiotherapy had also affected the informants psychologically, as they often was in low mood.
