Head and Neck Cancer
Treatments for Head and Neck Cancer
Treatments for head and neck cancer include surgical procedures using endoscopic instruments and laryngoscope tubes to enter the nasal and oral cavity. These procedures offer a minimally invasive surgical option to reduce side effects.
Cryosurgery or cryotherapy can use extreme cold temperatures to freeze and destroy cancer cells and tumors. Laser therapy involves the use of a beam of light to burn cancer cells and tumors.
Other treatment options for head and neck cancer are radiation therapy, chemotherapy and experimental biological therapy that empowers the immune system to fight against the cancer cells and tumors.
Doctors at Florida Hospital are specialized in head and neck cancer of all types and can recommend the appropriate treatment plan that is right for patients on an individual basis.
