Head and Neck Cancer Conditions
When caught early, head and neck cancer is highly curable, often with surgery, radiation, or a combination of the two. But the therapies are often complex, and the cancers are found in bone, skin and soft tissue, requiring the knowledge of top doctors to provide the best treatment.
At MedStar Georgetown, our skilled specialists work as a team and provide a full range of therapies, including promising clinical trials. They provide a plan tailored to your individual condition and needs—one that not only treats the cancer but also limits the impact on your appearance and your ability to swallow, breathe, eat and talk.
We have the capability to handle complex cases, and welcome the chance to help you with an initial diagnosis or provide a second opinion.
