Head and Neck Cancer Program

As the nation’s leading respiratory hospital we are focused on the entire airway. In addition to our lung cancer program, we also diagnose and treat cancers of the head and neck areas. Similar to lung cancer, the most common cause of head and neck cancer is tobacco use, but alcohol and the human papillomavirus (HPV) also can be factors.

Head and Neck Cancer includes:

  • Nose, nasal cavity, sinuses
  • Mouth, lips, tongue, salivary glands
  • Throat, larynx, vocal cords

Our Head and Neck Cancer Program offers a full range of treatment options:

  • Multidisciplinary clinicians and researchers dedicated to cancer prevention, detection and treatment
