Head and Neck

Head and neck tumours can have serious consequences for the patient and can affect social life and normal daily activities.

Most of these tumours occur in males aged between 60 and 70 years. The most frequently affected sites are oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, nose and paranasal sinuses, salivary glands, thyroid gland, and nervous and lymphatic structures of the neck, ear and skin.

The main use of electrochemotherapy in the head and neck area are in the locally advanced primitive tumours and  skin metastases not amenable with surgery.

In over 80% of cases electrochemotherapy controls the disease at local level and improves the patient's quality of life. 

We would advise you to consult your doctor to find out if electrochemotherapy can help you.

The technology used for the treatment of tumors and metastases of the head and neck is Cliniporator®.
