While this text is multi-disciplinary, it is written by head and neck surgeons with a primary focus on the surgical aspects of treatment for otolaryngologists and trainees.

Treatment usually involves surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, which involves a team of physicians from each of these areas.
