The incidence of head and neck cancer is highest in India. These cancers can affect the lips, tongue, mouth, larynx (voice box), pharynx, salivary glands, sinuses, and thyroid gland. Skin cancer or melanoma of the face and scalp also constitutes head and neck cancers. At Cytecare, we have a dedicated organ-site focused multidisciplinary team that provides services in areas of diagnosis, treatment, and post-treatment services for all kinds of head and neck cancers, as per their classification and staging. The team has extensive experience and state-of-the-art technology available to provide advanced/very-advanced/recurrent/salvage head and neck cancer surgeries, reconstruction/micro-vascular surgery, dental and maxillofacial prosthetics, and implant surgeries.
The treatment plan is customised for each patient, depending on the stage of cancer and other medical requirements. The multidisciplinary team, hence, plays a crucial role in the diagnosis as well as the treatment plan for every patient.
The goal of treating head and neck cancer is not just the removal of the tumour, but also to help patients cope with emotional and physical morbidity related to the disease and to provide rehabilitation services to patients. The aim is to facilitate restoration of confidence and to improve their quality of life. Hence, the comprehensive treatment plan at Cytecare also includes complete rehabilitation for each patient, in addition to treatment alone.
While one has no control over genetic factors related to head and neck cancers, there are some ways to reduce the overall risk of developing cancer:
If you fall in the at-risk category for any type of head and neck cancer (smoking, tobacco chewing, and alcohol consumption), our specialists at Cytecare recommend that individuals perform regular self-examinations and consult a doctor in case of any abnormalities.
Having years of experience in otolaryngology, microvascular surgery, maxillofacial surgery and head and neck cancers, enables our dedicated team of clinicians to provide accurate diagnosis. Our patients are carefully evaluated to prepare a therapy plan, in consultation with the Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Histopathology team. Accurate diagnosis of cancer paves the way for the appropriate treatment plan, hence, the team offers the following diagnostic support.
Cytecare is a specialised centre for Advanced Head and Neck Cancers that offers the following treatment modalities for all its patients:
Surgery is a crucial treatment modality in case of head and neck cancers. Sometimes, multiple surgeries may be needed to restore physical function and appearance. Even if the tumour is completely removed, some patients may require a multi-modality approach that integrates chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy along with surgery.
