Head and Neck Cancer

Regardless of your age, tobacco (including smokeless tobacco) and alcohol use are significant risk factors for head and neck cancers. If you are experiencing mouth and throat pain, lumps in the neck or sores in the mouth, hoarseness, persistent cough or difficulty swallowing we recommend you see an otolaryngologist as early detection is key to effective treatment options. 

If treatment for head and neck cancer is necessary, Washington University medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons partner to develop a plan for the individual patient. Learn more about their approach to head and neck cancer from the Siteman Cancer Center.
