Head and Neck Cancers

Although head and neck cancer is a common malignancy, there are few programs in the country that have dedicated, multidisciplinary teams to treat a large number of patients. The Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center has a nationally recognized Head and Neck Cancer Program which is staffed by expert surgeons, a full-time medical oncologist and full-time radiation oncologists.
