Cancer of the Pharynx Expertise

Doctors at Stanford's Head and Neck Cancer Program have a deep commitment to furthering the treatment options of pharyngeal cancer, and have conducted research including:

  • Using stereotactic radiosurgical boost to improve local control in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma
  • Assessing long-term outcomes following transpalatal, transmaxillary, and/or transcervical surgical resection (with and without neck dissection)

Additionally, genetic counselors at the Cancer Center can help patients assess risk if multiple people in a family have been diagnosed with pharyngeal cancer.
