Cancon has become an important event in the academic calendar. Previous three editions of Cancon were successful with more than 600 active participants deliberating on key issues involved in head and neck cancer management.

The Head & Neck Surgical Oncology team at Cytecare cancer hospitals, Bangalore likes to invite you all for the Laser masterclass in the management of Early Laryngeal lesions. The two days conference will be held in Bangalore on 18th and 19th July 2022.

Early glottic lesions are not uncommon in our clinical practice. There have been tremendous advances in technology, both in the evaluation and management of this condition. The use of Laser in this field is one such surgical advancement. In this symposium, we shall revisit all aspects with regards to the management of this condition.

The conference is planned as a HYBRID two-day event with Live surgeries followed by Didactic lectures on the first day; and a hands-on workshop on office-based flexible laryngoscopy and laser, followed by online lectures on the second day.

The symposium is organized in collaboration with the Association of Otolaryngologists of Karnataka (AOIK) and the Association of Otolaryngologists of Bangalore (AOB) We look forward to hosting you and enriching your knowledge and expertise in treating laryngeal lesions.
