Cancer Treatment Centers of America

Throat cancer requires expert care. We're here to help.

Throat cancer develops when abnormal cells grow out of control in the throat, larynx (voice box) or tonsils. Although incidence and mortality rates for this type of cancer have declined over the past few decades, throat cancers linked to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection are on the rise, particularly among men.

Experts hope increased awareness of throat cancer’s link to HPV, and new and innovative treatment options, will help more throat cancer patients survive the disease and improve their quality of life. Flexible robotic surgery, for example, is a minimally invasive treatment option that may lead to a quicker recovery for some head and neck cancer patients. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also has approved immunotherapy drugs, such as the checkpoint inhibitor drug pembrolizumab (Keytruda®), to treat some cases of advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
