Treatment and cure for tongue cancer

  • Cancer tissue found in right lateral tongue extending to mid lingual tongue to left lateral and floor of tongue. What is the treatment and chances of cure?

  • Hi Shashank. The description provided by you looks like a large tumor involving almost the entire tongue. Further tests like MRI head and neck is preferred to stage the disease. The patient is taken up for surgery if the lesion is operable. This is followed by radiation. Comment on the outcome cannot be made as the disease is not properly staged. Let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks.
