The earlier the diagnosis, the better the results

It is unfortunate, if understandable, that many patients have their diagnosis delayed because they haven’t seen an appropriate specialist at an early stage. However, it is well established that early diagnosis gives you the best chance for cure.

The surgeons at Head + Neck Surgery London regularly work together alongside oral medicine doctors in the early diagnosis of cancer and the management of white patch precancers or dysplasias. We also provide laser surgery to remove these lesions with low side effects and to reduce the chance of developing into cancers.

It's not just about treating the cancer

Oral cancer and its treatment can impact on important aspects of quality of life: speech, swallowing, eating and breathing.

Our oral cancer patients receive the expertise of highly skilled head and neck surgeons who also provide high quality and reliable reconstructions. We work together with the best restorative dentists and speech and swallowing specialists in the UK, to provide the best chance for successful treatment for oral cancer with the least impact on your body.
