Surgery is the main treatment for throat cancer, especially early-stage disease. Surgical procedures to treat throat cancer include vocal cord stripping, laser surgery, cordectomy, partial or total laryngectomy, pharyngectomy, and tracheotomy or tracheostomy. Because some surgical treatments may damage areas of the throat, some patients may undergo reconstructive procedures to restore the function and/or appearance of the affected area. Other treatments may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy.
