Facing Cancer


Inspired Care

Dr. Christine Chung says her job isn't just about treating head and neck cancer, but offering the best quality of life for all of her patients. Dr. Chung’s story begins with advice from her mother who had just moved her and her siblings from South Korea to the states. Her mother said to a very young Dr. Chung, “Whatever you choose to do, be the best at it.” This inspiration paved the way for her career in medicine. Today, she's offering solutions from simple to complex forms of  head and neck cancer cases right here at Moffitt.

  • A mouth sore that bleeds easily or does not heal within a few days
