Oropharyngeal Cancer: Greg's Story

Making a Clear-Cut Treatment Decision for Head and Neck Cancer

Greg spent more than a year in search of an accurate diagnosis for the symptoms he was told were caused by reflux. A biopsy performed at the Johns Hopkins Head and Neck Cancer Center identified the true problem: tonsil cancer. Greg underwent transoral robotic surgery and neck dissection to successfully remove the cancer. Two months out from surgery, he is pleased to report that radiation was not needed and he is 100% back to normal.
