Head and neck cancer refers to a collective group of cancers that form in the squamous cells that line the inside of the head and neck (like the nose, throat, and mouth, for example) and the salivary glands. The ideal treatment for head and neck cancer depends on the patient and a variety of factors, such as cancer location and stage, general health and medical history of the patient, and more. Possible treatment options that may be utilized by our surgeons include radiation therapy, targeted therapy, chemotherapy, surgery, or a combination of all of these.
