ENT OncologyTampa General Hospital’s Ear, Nose, and Throat Oncology Program has the specialized resources necessary to address benign and cancerous tumors of the head and neck. Our staff includes medical oncologists who specialize in the treatment of ear, nose, and throat cancers, as well as radiation oncologists, surgeons, and support staff.
Tampa General’s ENT Oncology Program treats almost all head and neck tumors affecting the following areas:

- Thyroid and parathyroid glands

- Skull base
Our team has access to a variety of diagnostic tools that enable us to make accurate and detailed diagnoses, an especially important factor when treating benign and cancerous tumors of the head or neck. By thoroughly mapping the location of a tumor, our staff can deliver treatment with greater precision than was previously possible, which may help limit damage to healthy cells. And, by determining the cellular characteristics of a lesion, we can further customize our treatment recommendations to be as effective as possible. We can provide surgical interventions, chemotherapy infusions, radiation therapy options, and supportive care services such as speech pathology assistance all in one place, making TGH a comprehensive choice for all ENT oncology patients.
