This content was provided by Dr. Stenson "The way we determine what sort of treatment a patient with a head and neck tumor will have is based on usually the stage of the cancer. And patients who have early stage cancer usually will have an operation first. Patients with more advanced stage cancer are seen by our multidisciplinary team, and as a group, we decide whether the patient should start with an operation first and have it followed with chemo and radiation or whether they should have chemo and radiation first. The whole goal is not just survival, but function and survival, and we prioritize both of those equally in a patient who has newly diagnosed head and neck cancer."
