Depending on a patient’s individual health and the stage of their condition, treating laryngeal cancer may include one or a variety of treatments. Doctors study the patient’s medical history, family history, general health, health goals and condition to recommend the best treatment.
Then doctors at Florida Hospital work with patients to develop a treatment plan tailored to the patient’s specific needs, health and goals.
Sometimes a single treatment is recommended, and other times a combination of treatments may be used. These are some of the treatments for laryngeal cancer:
- Radiation therapy
- Surgery to remove the cells or tumor
Other treatments for laryngeal cancer are being researched and developed. Through clinical trials, doctors at Florida Hospital can test these treatments. Some of these treatments may include the following:
- Chemoprevention – medications to reduce the risk of recurring laryngeal cancer or another cancer of the head and neck
- Radiosensitizers – drugs to make tumors more sensitive to radiation therapy.
