WHAT IS HEAD & NECK CANCER SURGERY?
Head and Neck cancer is largely the sequelae of smoking but can affect anyone with presentations in the voice box, salivary glands, thyroid and parathyroid glands, nose, sinus, mouth and throat.
When Dr William Mooney completed his training as an ENT specialist, he traveled abroad to work with some of the best Head and Neck Cancer Surgeons in the world. Head and Neck cancer surgery is one of the most challenging parts of Dr Mooney’s job but at the same time the part of which he is most proud.
Head and Neck Cancer can present in a variety of fashions, but as a rule symptoms that are progressive; a neck lump increasing in size, a voice that is deteriorating, swallowing difficulty, nasal obstruction getting worse, and any persistent bleeding, need prompt review.
