Conditions we treat

We treat patients diagnosed with many common and rare otolaryngological tumors and cancers, including:

Laryngeal cancers and pharyngeal cancers

Most laryngeal cancers start in the larynx, which is between the base of the tongue and the vocal cords.

Pharyngeal cancers in the throat, voice box or tonsils.

Oral cavity cancer

Oral cavity cancer is a disease in which malignant cells form in the lips or mouth.

Oropharyngeal cancer

Oropharyngeal cancer refers to cancers of the oropharynx, or the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and the tonsils.

Parathyroid tumors

Parathyroid cancer is a rare cancer that occurs in the parathyroid glands.

Salivary gland cancers

Many different types of benign and malignant tumors may develop in the salivary glands in the mouth, neck or throat. Most salivary gland cancers are rare. Due to the location of the salivary glands, these types of cancers can be detected and treated early.

Skin cancer and malignant melanoma

Melanoma is a form of skin cancer that arises when pigment-producing cells—known as melanocytes—mutate and become cancerous.

Thyroid cancer

Thyroid cancer is specific to the thyroid, which is a butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck.
