As the name suggests, Head and Neck Oncology is the field of treating cancers of the Ear/Nose/Throat. The treatments offered could be surgical or Non surgical(Radiation/Chemotherapy/Hormonal therapies) :-
Surgery: Surgery is done in cases of small and localised cancer. Cancer which is advanced and has spread to the surrounding areas requires more extensive surgery which may involve removal of parts of jaw, throat, mouth or voice box. Reconstructive surgery may help in restoring the appearance and functions, e.g. swallowing and speech.
Radiation therapy: Radiotherapy uses high energy rays to kill the cancer cells. It usually follows the surgery or may be used in combination with chemotherapy in advanced throat cancer. It can be used as the primary treatment in small throat cancers.
Chemotherapy/Hormonal therapy: Chemotherapy/hormonal therapy is often used in combination with surgery or radiation therapy in advanced cases. Powerful drugs are given which kills the cancer cells left behind after surgery or radiation therapy.

Feeding and breathing tubes may also be required in more advanced cases which need regular monitoring. Regular follow up is required to check for any recurrence of cancer.
