Head and Neck Cancer
Spokane Valley ENT physicians are experienced in the surgical treatment of head and neck cancer.
Head and neck cancer can affect the lips, mouth, tongue, nose, pharynx, larynx and other surrounding areas. Most head and neck cancers are squamous cell carcinomas that originate from the cells in the mucosal lining of these regions.
Head and neck cancer is strongly associated with certain environmental and lifestyle risk factors, including tobacco, smoking, alcohol consumption, and certain strains of the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus.
The disease is highly curable if detected and treated early, usually with some form of surgery. Spokane Valley ENT physicians are experienced in the surgical treatment of head and neck cancer and the surgical reconstruction of affected areas.
