For patients who have been diagnosed with tumors of the head and neck, newer less invasive surgeries can offer not only faster recovery and less discomfort, but also an improved quality of life. In the past, removing a growth in the mouth, on the tongue, and in the throat often required large cuts into the lip and jaw that resulted in speech and swallowing difficulties.
Now, these procedures have been perfected to allow patients to undergo tumor removal without having visible scarring. Additionally, these procedures, performed by WakeMed ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons, offer excellent cancer control for patients with malignancies.
