Head & Neck Cancer Center


Nearly 65,000 patients are diagnosed with cancer of the head and neck in the United States each year. These cancers can affect the nasal passages, sinuses, mouth, throat, larynx (voice box), swallowing passages, salivary glands and thyroid gland. Skin cancers that develop on the scalp, face or neck also may be considered head and neck cancers. Many of these cancers are responsive to treatment.

The Johns Hopkins Head and Neck Cancer Center and our multidisciplinary team ( made up of specialists from Surgical Oncology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Speech Pathology ) provide comprehensive care in treatment and post-treatment services.

More than 200 people are treated for head and neck cancer at the Johns Hopkins Head and Neck Cancer Center each year. Each patient receives state-of-the-art treatment as well as rehabilitation and prevention services. Treatment is tailored to the patients individual needs by a team of more than 30 specialists who are the foremost experts in the field.
