Head and Neck cancer is an aggressive form of cancer that may include the tongue, throat and larynx. Historically, it was thought to be a cancer that one gets from smoking, but more cases are appearing in nonsmokers. 

Skin cancer can also occur on the face and head. Utilizing plastic surgery techniques the cancer can be removed to provide the best cosmetic result possible.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the front of the neck. It produces thyroid hormone, which controls your metabolism, temperature regulation, and keeps your muscles and organs working properly.

Thyroid and parathroid conditions include: 
  • Goiter is an enlarged thyroid gland. A goiter can develop in one or both sides of the thyroid gland.
  • Thyroid Cancer is very common, particularly in women. 
  • Thyroid Nodules are area of abnormal growth within the thyroid gland. Some people have a single nodule while others have multiple nodules within the gland.
