The treatments for nasopharyngeal cancer that is recommended for patients may vary depending on the patient’s individual health, needs and condition. Many times, doctors recommend radiation and/or chemotherapy first. These treatments may completely kill the cancer cells and ensure they do not return.
If radiation therapy and chemotherapy do not work or if the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, surgery may be recommended to remove the tumor. Florida Hospital Cancer Institute offers advanced, minimally invasive treatments for patients who qualify. These procedures reduce side effects, pain and recovery time.

Some treatments may cause permanent side effects. Patients should fully understand the risk and side effects of each treatment before undergoing any procedure.
