What Sets Us Apart

Oropharyngeal cancer develops in the oropharynx. This includes the back of the tongue, the tonsils, the soft palate—the spongy, flexible part of the roof of the mouth—and the sides and back wall of the throat.

At NYU Langone’s Head and Neck Center, part of the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, head and neck surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, and radiologists collaborate to develop the best treatment plan for you.
