Types of head and neck cancers we treat

  • Skin cancers (including complex skin cancers not treatable by Mohs surgery)
  • Parathyroid adenomas
  • Oral cancers (cancers of the mouth)
  • Throat cancers
  • Voice box cancers
  • Salivary gland tumors
  • Skull base tumors (in the sinuses, ears, eyes, or around the base of the skull)

Your physician will discuss nonsurgical and surgical options, and we'll recommend additional resources and care as needed to help you through your cancer journey.

Nonsurgical treatment options

Nonsurgical options for cancer care include chemotherapy, immunotherapy and radiation therapy. These treatments may be combined, and your care plan may also include surgery.

Surgical treatment options

A surgical oncologist may remove all or part of an organ affected by cancer. For example, if you have thyroid cancer, you may undergo a thyroidectomy to remove all or part of the thyroid gland.

Minimally invasive surgical treatment options include:

  • Transoral robotic surgery of the mouth, throat and voice box
  • Minimally invasive surgery for tumors of the thyroid, parathyroid, mouth, throat and base of the skull

Cancer support

We know a cancer diagnosis affects more than your physical health. If you've just learned about a cancer diagnosis, are supporting a loved one through treatment or are transitioning into survivorship, we can connect you with a local community for ongoing care.
