Treatments Of The Head & Neck Cancers

Treatments of the head & neck cancers are extremely complex, according to Doctors Guilherme Rabinowits, Co-Leader of Head & Neck Oncology and Geoffrey Young, Chief of Head & Neck Surgery at the Miami Cancer Institute. Doctor Rabinowits considers It's extremely important once the patient is diagnosed to see a multidisciplinary team where it has not only a surgeon, but a medical oncologist and radiation oncologist too. Dr. Young explains The five-year survival plan, which is mainly based on statistics. “It's what we call the prognosis and we consider someone in most head and neck cancers that's made it to five year mark to be “cured", he says". The goal is curing the cancer, and optimize the quality of life, doctors agree.
