Treatments

Cancer of the post-nasal space is very dangerous due to its ability to spread into the skull. It is recommend that the cancer is treated with radiotherapy ('radium or X-ray' treatment) and chemotherapy (chemical). If it returns, as half of cases do, then further radiotherapy and chemotherapy is usually recommended. Surgery is only useful for the rare cancer that has returned and can be excised without too much harm to the patient. If neck glands persist despite radiation treatment then these should be excised too.

The cancer team managing this condition must be experienced. The patient might ask how many "new head and neck cancers" they have treated to date.If they see at least 80 patients a year then they are probably experienced enough. In addition the cancer team should be made up of an Ear, Nose Throat Surgeon, an Oral-Maxillo-Facial Surgeon, a Plastic Reconstructive surgeon, a Clinical Oncologist, a Head Neck Nurse and Head Neck Dietician. All members of the team should be present at the meeting with you.

Outcome

The aim of the treatment is to destroy all of the cancer; this is ultimately possible in about 50% of patients.
