Throat Cancer Treatment

If your doctor thinks you might have throat cancer, he or she will probably recommend a biopsy, which often can be done in the clinic, but sometimes a brief visit to the operating room is necessary.

Your doctor will also order a CT scan, which will reveal a great deal about the tumor – its size, its location, how much it has spread, and which specific structures are involved. This photo is an example of what a CT scan looks like. It shows a jawbone eaten through with cancer, with a tooth floating in the middle of the tumor.
