In brief: Depends on the type
Oropharyngeal cancer can be removed and treated.
I have recently had two patients have successful treatment of stage four oropharyngeal cancer and are both in remission. Get under the care of a good university based program and make sure the treating surgeons and oncologists meet regularly to treat your type of cancer with the latest methods. Good luck!
