As part of Norton Cancer Institute’s major renovation of its downtown location, the building’s second floor has been remodeled to expand access to the Head and Neck Tumor Program. The expansion optimizes the program’s ability to meet the specific needs of patients with benign or malignant tumors of the head, neck or nearby related areas.
Treating tumors of this type requires an organized care plan created by specially trained and skilled clinicians. Our diverse multidisciplinary team includes oncologists, an oncologic dermatologist, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, otolaryngologists and plastic surgeons. A specially trained patient navigator works closely with the care team to meet each patient’s needs. Patients also may need behavioral oncology, oral prosthodontistry, speech pathology, nutritional counseling and physical therapy.
Our multidisciplinary team treats various tumors of the head and neck, including:
- Basal cell carcinoma
- Merkel cell carcinoma
- Oral cancer
- Papillary, follicular, medullary and anaplastic thyroid carcinoma
- Throat cancer
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Other tumors and cancers in the head and neck region
Treatment options can vary and may include:
- Surgery, including minimally invasive endoscopic endonasal surgery
- Stereotactic radiosurgery and external beam radiation therapy
- Chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy
- Clinical trials
- Plastic and reconstructive surgery
