Head & Neck Cancer 

Head and neck cancer affects the mouth, throat, sinuses, nasal cavity, larynx and salivary glands. The average age of people with these types of cancer is 62, although they can occur in younger people. They are twice as common in men as in women.[i]

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Plano offers a highly skilled, experienced team of surgical oncologists to treat head and neck cancer. In fact, the surgeons on our medical staff take complex head and neck cancer referrals from all over Texas. From diagnosis and treatment through recovery, our team is here for you every step of the way. 

As a cancer program, our awards and accreditations [link to new next tier page] truly set us apart – both in Collin County and in Texas. We have recently earned: 

Only 25 percent of hospitals in the U.S. are CoC-certified, yet 75 percent of cancer patients seek their health care at these facilities. In other words, the majority of cancer patients choose programs like ours—programs with a firm commitment to offering every significant advantage in the battle against cancer.
