If you are diagnosed with laryngeal cancer, a cancer of the voice box, the experienced and multidisciplinary team from Jefferson's Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson in Philadelphia can carefully guide you through available treatment options that address all your medical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Treatment Options for Laryngeal Cancer

Rated among the best hospitals in the nation for Cancer, according to U.S.News & World Report, our Center brings together the expertise of Jefferson oncologists, radiation therapists, radiologists and otolaryngologists to give a thorough evaluation and devise a personalized treatment plan based on the size of the tumor, its location and the progression of your cancer. Our physicians may also determine if you are eligible to receive experimental treatments through clinical trials conducted at Jefferson on an ongoing basis.

If surgery is recommended, Jefferson specialists will work with you following your procedure to manage complications that might make it difficult to swallow, eat solid foods or speak. We will provide the necessary therapy to help you improve functioning in these areas.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are the best way patients can receive new therapies and procedures. To find out if a clinical trial might be right for you, ask your health care provider or contact the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center Clinical Research Management Office at 215-955-1661.
