Head and Neck Cancer

Head and Neck Cancer

Head and neck cancers include cancers in the larynx, throat, lips, mouth, nose, and salivary glands. At Apollomedics Hospitals in Lucknow, our team of highly skilled and compassionate oral cancer surgeons in Lucknow is committed to providing exceptional care for patients with head and neck cancer. Head and neck cancer encompasses a range of conditions affecting areas such as the mouth, throat, voice box, salivary glands, and nasal cavity. Our dedicated oral cancer surgeons understand the challenges associated with this condition and offer specialized expertise to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

When it comes to oral cancer, our skilled oral cancer surgeons in Lucknow utilise advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to accurately diagnose and stage the disease. They work closely with a multidisciplinary team of experts, including radiation oncologists and medical oncologists, to develop personalised treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs. From minimally invasive surgeries to complex reconstructive procedures, our oral cancer surgeons are adept at providing comprehensive surgical care while preserving essential functions and optimising cosmetic outcomes.

These cancers can start —

  • In the sinuses (the spaces around the nose on the inside of the skull).
  • Inside and behind the nose.
  • In the mouth, including the tongue, the gums, and the roof of the mouth.
  • In the back of the mouth and the throat (pharynx), which includes three sections called the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and hypopharynx
  • In the larynx (voice box).
  • On the lips, although cancer on the lips is a type of skin cancer.
  • In the glands that make saliva for the mouth, but those are relatively rare.

Types of head and neck cancer:

At Apollomedics Hospitals in Lucknow, our dedicated team of experienced cancer surgeons specializes in providing comprehensive care for various types of cancers. When it comes to head and neck cancer, we understand the importance of accurate diagnosis and effective treatment options. Here are some of the different types of head and neck cancers that we address:

  • Oropharyngeal Cancer:

This type of cancer originates in the oropharynx, which includes the soft palate, back of the tongue, and tonsils. Oropharyngeal cancer is commonly associated with the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection. Other risk factors include smoking, alcohol consumption, and tobacco use.

  • Oral Cancer:

Oral cancer begins in the mouth and can involve the thin, flat cells lining the oral cavity. The most common form is squamous cell carcinoma. Salivary gland tumors, lip cancer, and tongue cancer are other types of oral cancers. Risk factors for oral cancer include smoking, alcohol consumption, poor oral hygiene, certain types of HPV, and chewing tobacco.

  • Nasopharynx Cancer:

Nasopharynx cancer originates in the nasopharynx, located behind the nose. The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a common cause of this type of cancer. Other risk factors include smoking, alcohol consumption, and exposure to certain chemicals.

  • Salivary Gland Tumors:

Salivary gland tumors can be benign, malignant, or precancerous. These tumors originate in the small glands that produce saliva. While benign tumors are noncancerous and do not spread, malignant tumors can metastasize to other parts of the body. Prompt treatment is necessary for precancerous tumors to prevent them from becoming cancerous.

  • Thyroid Cancer:

Thyroid cancer begins in the thyroid gland, located in the front of the neck. Exposure to radiation is a significant risk factor, along with a family history of thyroid cancer, certain genetic mutations, and autoimmune diseases.
