Salivary Gland Tumors

Salivary gland tumors are rare but can develop in one of the three major glands in the head that help protect the mouth and throat from infection.

Pituitary Tumors

Pituitary tumors are abnormal growths that develop in the pituitary gland, which produces and controls the balance of certain hormones in the body.

Neck Tumor

Neck tumor is often the result of malignant tumors that have spread from some other areas of the body and can be treated with surgical excision.

Ear Tumor

Ear tumors includes any abnormal growth in the visible outer ear, such as skin tumors in the middle or inner ear that can affect hearing.

Esophagus Tumor

Pituitary tumors are abnormal growths that develop in the pituitary gland, which produces and controls the balance of certain hormones in the body.

Larynx and Trachea Tumor

Pharynx Tumor

Pharynx cancer, commonly known as throat cancer, may be treated with a pharyngectomy surgery to remove the infected tissue along with reconstruction.

Skin Tumor

Skin tumors on the face, neck, or scalp should be evaluated and may need to be surgically removed to prevent spread to other areas.

Skull Base Tumor

Tumors and lesions in the skull base may be removed with advanced cancer surgery at the Head & Neck Cancer Center of Texas in Dallas/Fort Worth.

Temporal Bone Tumor

Temporal bone cancer is a tumor or abnormal growth that has developed or spread into the lower section of the skull and can be treated with surgery.
