Head and Neck Cancer Area
"There are no effective programs for the early detection of head and neck cancer. Close monitoring is recommended for people with known risk factors, such as heavy smokers and heavy drinkers."
DR. FRANCISCO JAVIER SERRANO COORDINATOR. HEAD AND NECK CANCER AREA
In the Head and Neck Cancer Area of the Cancer Center Clínica Universidad de Navarra we have a multidisciplinary approach, with all the professionals involved in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with head and neck tumors in order to offer the best possible treatment.
We have a unit specialized in oncological and reconstructive surgery of the head and neck. We are committed to minimally invasive endoscopic techniques and we are pioneers in the use of robotic surgery to perform more precise surgeries and minimize complications that may arise.
Due to its location, often difficult to access surgically and its proximity to organs and structures sensitive to radiation, proton therapy is an alternative indication for head and neck tumors to conventional radiotherapy, which offers greater safety for the patient.
Since head and neck cancers often have consequences on speech, swallowing, breathing or facial appearance, our team of professionals includes surgeons specialized in restoring complex function and aesthetic reconstruction.

Proton therapy against cancer
Proton therapy is the most precise external radiotherapy modality, providing better distribution of radiation dose and therefore less irradiation of healthy tissues.
