No matter who you are or what your condition, a cancer diagnosis can be one of life’s scariest challenges – but it’s never something you have to face alone. At Orange County CyberKnife, we are committed to providing our patients with comprehensive treatment and support throughout the battle against cancer, using world-class cancer treatments like CyberKnife to help our patients beat cancer without surgery. We treat a wide variety of cancerous conditions, including the various forms of head & neck cancer.
Head & neck cancer is a blanket term used to refer to any cancer that forms in the mouth, throat, sinuses, or the tissues and cavities of the head. Notably, head & neck cancer does not encompass cancers that form in the brain or the skull cavity – brain cancer is a separate condition with its own types, stages, and treatments.
Head & neck cancer is generally divided into one of five main types, classified by their location:
Each of these five categories may contain a number of specific types of cancers, and each individual cancer type has its own unique set of stages. Your oncologist will work with you to use diagnostic tests to determine your exact type of cancer, its stage and prognosis, and your treatment plan.
In all cases, head & neck cancer is a serious condition that should be treated as quickly as possible – and if you or a loved one have recently been diagnosed, OC CyberKnife is committed to helping you.
