Surgery is often the first line of treatment for Head and Neck Cancer. During Head and Neck Cancer Surgeries Treatment, while some patients may be treated with surgery alone, others are treated with combining Head and Neck Cancer Surgery with radiation therapy and chemotherapy. An Oncologist will do everything possible to minimize the changes that surgery may cause to functions such as speech and swallowing. Although the type of surgery depends upon the size and position of the head cancer and neck cancer, before the surgery, the surgeon will discuss the surgery with you. Most surgeries for Head Cancer and Neck Cancer involve a hospital stay and an operation under general anesthetic. The extent of the surgery depends upon the size of the cancer. In case of a small cancer in the mouth, the surgeon may operate through your open mouth. If the cancer is larger, at the back of your mouth or in the throat, the surgeon will usually need to make a cut (incision) so they can reach it. If cancer cells spread from the head or neck, the first place they are likely to go to the lymph nodes in the neck. A neck dissection is an operation to remove some or all of the lymph nodes in one or both sides of the neck.
