Head and Neck Cancer
About Head and Neck Cancer
Head and Neck Cancers include tumors arising from the many sites including the tonsil, tongue, larynx, and salivary glands. The most common tumor type is squamous cell carcinoma, which can often be very sensitive to chemotherapy and radiation.
Our Goal in EJGH Radiation Oncology is to both cure the cancer and maintain your quality of life. Maintaining quality of life includes preserving teeth, taste, speech, and swallowing. We work closely with our colleagues in head and neck surgery, speech therapy, dental oncology, and medical oncology to get our patients the best outcomes.
