Head & Neck Cancer

Cancer Care That’s Ahead of the Rest.

Head & Neck Cancer Care at Allegheny Health Network

Representing about 3% of all cancers, most head and neck cancers develop from malignant tumors found in and around the base of the skull, eye sockets (called orbits), throat, larynx, thyroid, nose, sinuses, and mouth.

While cancers affecting the head and neck are rare, at Allegheny Health Network you can still rely on the strength of our vigorous research programs and pioneering new clinical trials and therapies. Our cancer care team, along with your 24/7 Care Navigator, coordinates a personalized treatment for you, supporting your challenges, helping you better manage your emotions, listening to your concerns and strengthening your overall well-being.
