Image Enhancement for Oral Cancer Patients
Your Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) care team understands that hair loss and changes in skin and body can be devastating aftereffects of cancer and the resulting treatment. As part of our mission to provide you and your family with total care as we help you fight oral cancer, our image enhancement specialists provide support in two important ways.
Cosmetic image enhancement
The CTCA Cosmetic Image Enhancement program assists women and men undergoing chemotherapy and radiation with appearance and body image issues. Our team will help you prepare for hair loss and the other cosmetic changes that may occur during oral cancer treatment. We’ve developed classes and seminars for you, your family and community members. In addition, beauticians, cosmetologists and salon personnel are often available at our hospitals.
Plastic and reconstructive support
Your care team at CTCA may include surgical oncologists and plastic/reconstructive surgeons. For many oral cancer patients, surgery is a treatment option. Plastic surgeons may also be able to perform restorative procedures immediately following or during surgery to remove a tumor.
