Head and Neck Cancer Chemotherapy Oncology Services

Chemotherapy is the treatment of head and neck cancer with drugs that target cells that divide quickly.

At UPMC CancerCenter, we offer a full range of chemo and biologic targeted therapies for people with head and neck cancer.

Your head and neck cancer care may include medical oncology when surgery alone is unlikely to remove the cancer. In some cases, chemo can keep cancer from spreading or slow the growth of your head or neck tumor.

Your doctor often pairs chemo with radiation therapy.

Our head and neck cancer team works together to decide the best evidence-based approach to meet your unique needs.
