Head and Neck Cancer

Whether common or rare, head and neck cancers, which include throat cancer, larynx cancer and oral cancers, are treated at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center by specialists.  These experts form a multidisciplinary team and can include head and neck surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, speech and language pathologists, audiologists, radiation oncologists, dentists, nutritionists, nurse practitioners, nurses and social workers.  When the patient's multidisciplinary team meets, they produce a personalized treatment plan for optimal outcomes.

Team members also work together to conduct groundbreaking research.  As a result, our patients have access to the latest and most advanced treatment options.

As part of the Cancer Center, patients also have access to other support services to help them and their family with their diagnosis, treatment and beyond.  Learn more about the head and neck clinic at the Cancer Center website or call one of our Cancer AnswerLine™ nurses at 800-865-1125.
