Tests & Treatments

  • Chemotherapy
    Chemotherapy has the ability to reach cancer that may have spread, even microscopically, throughout the body.

  • Laryngoscopy with Biopsy
    A laryngoscopy with biopsy is one of many in the work-up and treatment of head and neck cancers at Jefferson.

  • Radiation Therapy
    If you are concerned with how radiation may affect your health, Jefferson physicians have made great strides in reducing the effects of radiation on normal tissue surrounding the tumor being treated.

  • Rapid Access Radiation Therapy (RAP-PT)
    Rapid Access Radiation Therapy provides pain relief for cancer that has spread to the bone as a source of comfort for patients with advanced cancer. It can be used as an alternative to narcotics or in addition to other pain medications.
