Specializes in Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy is used quite extensively for head and neck cancers. The area covers nasopharynx, throat, tongue, lip. Sometimes radiation therapy is done by itself, and at times in combination with other modalities like surgery and/or chemotherapy.

Head and neck cancer is very complex and treatments vary depending on where it is and also what stage it is (among other things). Your head and neck cancer surgeon and radiation oncologist should be able to help you.
