Oral Cancer Treatment : Surgical Methods

Depending on the stage of Oral Cancer the type of surgery is recommended. Tumor resection is an operation to remove the entire tumor. Some normal tissue surrounding the tumor is also removed to ensure that no cancer cells remain in the body. Mohs micrographic surgery is a tumor removed in very thin slices, with each slice examined under the microscope for the presence of cancer cells. Full or partial mandible (jawbone) resection when a tumor has grown into the jawbone, a mandibular resection or mandibulectomy, may be needed. Glossectomy is type of cancer surgery, which involves removal of the tongue, is used to treat cancers of the tongue. Maxillectomy is the operation removes all or part of the hard palate, the front of the roof of the mouth. Laryngectomy is the surgical oncology procedure involves removing the voice box along with the primary tumor. Neck dissection is the type of oral cancer surgery is used to remove lymph nodes in the neck if cancer has spread to this area.
