At Temple, treatment for head and neck cancer focuses on you, your successful treatment and how it impacts your life after treatment. Our Head & Neck Cancer Program provides advanced, comprehensive care from a team of cancer specialists dedicated to helping you beat cancer while minimizing the impact treatment side effects can have on your life.
Head and neck cancer occurs in the throat, larynx (voice box), nose, sinuses, thyroid and mouth. That means cancer and treatments can affect your appearance, your ability to swallow and talk and your sense of smell and taste. We know you may have many concerns and questions about how cancer and treatment will affect your everyday life. You’re likely wondering if you’ll be able to eat, work and care for your family. We’re here with answers, support and compassion every step of the way.
