How is oral cancer treated?
Surgery to remove tumors from the oral cavity – as well as the throat or skull base, in some instances – is often the primary form of oral cancer treatment. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy may also be used to destroy existing cancer cells and prevent them from spreading.
At Moffitt, we understand that oral cancer treatment involves more than removing tumors. Some patients require reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation to restore their quality of life. Our oral cancer program includes reconstructive surgeons, maxillofacial prosthodontists, speech therapists and other experts who specialize in helping patients thrive and enjoy life after cancer.
Moffitt invites patients from Orlando, FL, to take advantage of discounted rates at partner hotels located near our cancer center. These hotels adhere to our rigorous hygiene standards and are committed to providing a comfortable environment for our patients and their loved ones.
