Tongue cancer treatment options



  • What are the available treatment options for stage 1 tongue cancer? I have a tumor under my tongue but I do not want to get chemotherapy. Is there an alternative?



  • Hi Shiv, stage 1 cancer of floor of mouth comes under early-stage disease which is ideally treated by surgical removal. Further treatment with radiation alone or in combination with chemotherapy is advised in select cases based on surgical pathology report findings. Chemotherapy is given in low dose along with radiation to increase the effectiveness of radiation in selected patients. We recommend setting up a meeting with your Oncologist to find out an optimum treatment plan for your specific condition. Do keep us posted in case of any further queries.
