Treatment overview:

What are the treatment options for throat cancer?
  • Surgery: Surgery is done in cases of small and localized cancer. Cancer which is advanced and has spread to the surrounding areas requires more extensive surgery which may involve removal of parts of jaw, throat, mouth or voice box. Reconstructive surgery may help in restoring the appearance and functions, e.g. swallowing and speech.
  • Radiation therapy: Radiotherapy uses high energy rays to kill the cancer cells. It usually follows the surgery or may be used in combination with chemotherapy in advanced throat cancer. It can be used as the primary treatment in small throat cancers.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is often used in combination with surgery or radiation therapy in advanced cases. Powerful drugs are given which kills the cancer cells left behind after surgery or radiation therapy.

Early diagnosis and treatment has a better prognosis. Small and localized cancer can be successfully removed by surgery. Once the cancer cells have spread beyond the head and neck region treatment becomes difficult in throat cancer.
