More treatment information for oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer

For more details on treatment options — including some that may not be addressed in this document — the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (www.nccn.org) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are good sources of information.

The NCI provides treatment guidelines via its telephone information center (1-800-4-CANCER) and its Web site (www.cancer.gov). Detailed guidelines intended for use by cancer care professionals are also available on this Web site.

The NCCN, made up of experts from many of the nation’s leading cancer centers, develops cancer treatment guidelines for doctors to use when treating patients. These are available on the NCCN Web site (www.nccn.org). (Information on oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers is found in the NCCN Head and Neck Cancers guideline.)
