What are the Treatment Options
The oncologist in Kolkata uses the following treatment approaches:
- Neck splitting is a surgical procedure in which the fatty content of the neck is removed in the treatment of cancer. Cancer cells often migrate to the lymph nodes in the neck. The Neck Dissection procedure was performed to prevent these cells from migrating.
- Oral regeneration and reconstruction are done to treat cancer that grows inside the mouth. This is known as oropharynx cancer. The procedure uses a cut to remove a tumour from within the lining of the oral cavity.
Glossectomy, a procedure that involves the removal of part or all of the tongue surgically, is commonly used to treat cancer of the tongue.
