Radiation for Throat Cancer
In 2011 I went through treatment for stage IV throat cancer. It was in my left tonsil. It is a curable cancer but the treatment is brutal and the side effects can be life changing and permanent. I post this video so that those facing this treatment and their friends and family will know what one session of radiation is like. I went through 33 rounds of radiation and 3 rounds of chemo (Cisplatin). In this video the you see the first part where I am placed on the table (my feeding tube visible under my shirt) and the radiation mask snapped down. The techs leave the room and the next part is the daily x-ray to check my position and the alignment of the machine. At 7:38 the actual delivery of radiation begins with two arcs encompassing my neck. At 11:33 the machine stops in front of my face, directing a concentrated beam directly at the tumor through my mouth. Have questions about what to expect? Contact me through the comments and I'll be glad to tell you about my experience and survival. BTW I am also an RN.

Oral Cancer Patients Have a Lot to Swallow
Patients with oral cancers had a much better long-term diet if they received oral feeding and practiced swallowing exercises during radiation therapy. That's the word from a new study. For Stacey Brill, those are words to live by. "If we can maintain you eating and drinking throughout the course of your treatment, maintain you on the course of nutrition and hydration, make sure your pain levels are under control, your whole life is going to be better," says Brill. Brill is a speech therapist with Lee Memorial Health System. She works with head and neck cancer patients, some who've lost vital parts to surgery, others have damage from radiation. Her challenge it to re-teach them how to swallow. "In the swallowing therapy we use a combination of things. We're going to do a modified swallow to assess the swallow function. Once we identify what's wrong with the swallow we're able to bring them into the clinic and put the Vitalstim electrodes on them which is going to make their swallowing muscles contract," says Brill. This large study showed oral cancer patients who maintained oral intake were twice as likely to eat a regular diet later. And those who stuck to swallowing exercises were four times as likely to eat normally. Working with a cancer dietitian also makes the process easier to digest. "We can empower the patients to participate, to nourish and hydrate themselves. And nutrition is so important, the replacing possible nutrients or bi-products that are lost through the whole treatment plan," says Valerie Butram, oncology dietitian with Lee Memorial Health System. A key to success is being proactive, using a cancer pathway that includes feeding as part of the overall treatment plan. "If we can start you on a home education program or a home exercise program to prevent those deficits to happen over the course of your cancer treatment, you're obviously going to be better off," says Brill. Staying on top of swallowing may help cancer patients enjoy a lifetime of eating.

Hard to Swallow- After Effects of Head & Neck Cancer
A cancer survivor, Michael Tartaro is happy he’s around to talk about it. “I had base of the tongue, head, and neck cancer. Stage four with tumors.” He immediately underwent intense treatment. “Radiation and heavy chemo for three months - they’d rather hit it quickly and hard,” says Tartaro. In years past, eradicating his cancer could have left Tartaro speechless. “If you go back 10 years ago, patients were getting more radical neck dissections. There was more accessory nerve damage. Radiation wasn’t quite as pin-pointed. Chemo drugs were a little bit different. So we had a full gamut of different side effects,” says Stacey Brill a speech therapist with Lee Memorial Health System. She provides therapy for oral cancer patients. Even with fewer surgeries performed today, life-saving treatments are almost always life-changing. “Eighty-five percent of this population does have a swallowing deficit to a varying degree.” Getting a head start on therapy can minimize aftereffects. Helping patients swallow and eat, returning them to their pre-cancer selves as quickly as possible. “A lot of them do have aspiration risks. If we can go ahead and start their therapy at that point in time, and start working with the muscles, we get better and faster outcomes.” To counteract scarring and tissue damage, Tartaro undergoes electrical stimulation. It reduces his risk of choking and makes it easier to eat by retraining his swallowing muscles. “Curing the cancer is amazingly good. But if you don’t have the therapy to follow up, I mean if I couldn’t eat anymore, you start to get the quality of life issues, serious quality of life issues,” says Tartaro. With specialized care, head and neck cancer patients can face the future in the fullest sense.

Surgery of an Early Stage of Tounge Cancer. A rare video
Tongue cancer Tongue cancer is a type of oral cancer that forms in the front two-thirds of the tongue. Cancer that forms in the back one third of the tongue is considered a type of head and neck cancer. Tongue cancer usually develops in the squamous cells, the thin, flat cells that cover the surface of the tongue. Common tongue cancer symptoms Symptoms of tongue cancer are very similar to symptoms of other types of oral cancer. It can often be mistaken for a cold that won’t go away, or a persistent sore in the mouth. Other tongue cancer symptoms and signs may include: Persistent tongue and/or jaw pain A lump or thickening in the inside of the mouth A white or red patch on the gums, tongue, tonsil, or lining of the mouth A sore throat or feeling that something is caught in the throat that does not go away Difficulty swallowing or chewing Difficulty moving the jaw or tongue NOTE: These symptoms may be attributed to a number of conditions other than cancer. It is important to consult with a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis. Advanced treatments for tongue cancer Common tongue cancer treatments include: Surgery: Tumor resection involves an operation to remove the entire tumor from the tongue. Minimally invasive surgical techniques are used whenever possible to treat tongue cancer. Radiation therapy: Your radiation oncologist will administer radiation therapy to cancerous tissues of the tongue, directing high, targeted doses of radiation to the tumor using technology designed to spare healthy tissue and shorten procedure times. Chemotherapy: Often combined with radiation therapy, chemotherapy uses anticancer drugs to destroy cancer cells throughout the body. It may be an option if the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes. Different chemotherapy drugs can be combined to attack cancer cells at varying stages of their growth cycles and decrease the chance of drug resistance. Targeted drug therapy: Targeted drug therapy targets cancerous cells to interfere with cell growth on a molecular level. It is often combined with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy as part of a tongue cancer treatment plan.

Oral Cancer Patients Face Better Outcomes
He represents the changing face of oral cancer: Michael Tartaro was diagnosed two years ago with stage 4 disease, with tumors in the base of his tongue. “And luckily it was diagnosed and we started treatment almost immediately,” says Tartaro. His treatment consisted of radiation and chemo. It destroyed the cancer but was far less traumatic than in years past. “The chemotherapy was pretty good. They’ve come a long way now so if people are worried about it they shouldn’t. I mean they have drugs now you don’t even get nauseous,” says Tartaro. “If you go back 20 years or so, prior to that time, we were doing much more surgery then we are today. Routinely now we save the surgery as a salvage type procedure. In other words, if they go through the chemotherapy and radiation don't get a cure then we can usually go in and do the surgery,” says Dr. Phillip Andrews, who is an otolaryngologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. With a new approach to treatment, today’s oral cancer patients face better outcomes; both in surviving and thriving. Survival rates have steadily improved since 1975. And people are coming through with fewer long-term complications. “Most people who go through combined therapy - which is radiation and chemotherapy - most of those people in six months to a year at their routine follow up, they will tell me I never felt better in my life,” says Dr. Andrews. Improved outcomes are based on several things: more people are getting screened. Cancer is diagnosed earlier, treatment options are improved and more patients have access to swallowing specialists. “Initiate therapy at the early onset of somebody needing therapy. Also be able to monitor them throughout the course of their chemo and radiation,” says Stacey Brill, who is a speech pathologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Michael still works on his chewing and swallowing. But is voicing no complaints. “The tumors have completely gone, the doctor can’t find them. So I’m happy,” says Tartaro.

Overcoming Tongue Cancer
Cara Denny was diagnosed with tongue cancer twice. “I didn’t even know there was such a thing as tongue cancer.” It was a scary diagnosis for Cara, but finding out the cancer was back was even more terrifying. “It was almost like I had bit my tongue, but it wouldn’t go away.” Dr. Anthony Anfuso, an oral surgeon on the medical staff of Lee Health, removed half of Cara’s tongue and all of the lymph nodes from her neck. “We rebuild the tongue. If you just closed it and stitched the tongue to the remaining tissue that would really limit her speech.” To rebuild the tongue, the surgeon used tissue from Cara’s forearm. He then connected the tissue to a small artery and a small vein in the neck. The tissue gives Cara fairly normal tongue mobility, which helps her speak and swallow. “The arm is a very, very reliable flap and it has fairly thin tissue. You don’t want a big bulky tissue in there to repair the tongue. Otherwise it would actually hurt her speech and swallowing,” said Dr. Anfuso. During the ten hour procedure, surgeons were able to remove all cancer cells. In Cara’s case that meant no chemotherapy or radiation was needed afterward. “I’m feeling great. It was interesting because after the procedure, it was a lot more intense than I expected, and you walk out with your speech, where it’s difficult,” said Cara. After a few months of speech and occupational therapy, Cara is able to eat, taste, and speak normally. “You kind of know your body, and you know when something is going on,” said Cara. If you notice any pain or abnormal spots on your tongue, be sure to talk to your primary care doctor.

Trans Oral Robotic Surgery Offers Revolutionary Treatment for Throat Cancer Patient | UCLA Health
When 55-year-old David Alpern was diagnosed with throat cancer, he sought various opinions about his treatment options, but was disheartened about his choices. In fact, some of the proposed treatments seemed worse to him than the diagnosis itself. For instance, one procedure David described as, "Your face is split in half and they go in and it's basically a reconstructive surgery." At that point, David came to UCLA and head and neck surgeon Abie Mendelsohn, MD, hoping for a treatment plan that made sense to him. Dr. Mendelsohn offered him a new treatment -- a minimally invasive robotic surgery that Dr. Mendelsohn describes as almost like a dental procedure. "What used to be a very gruesome, very debilitating surgery can now be done by only taking out what we absolutely have to," Dr. Mendelsohn says of this new procedure.

How Can Brachytherapy Help Treat Cancer? - Manipal Hospitals
What is Brachytherapy? It is an internal radiation therapy used for treating cancer. How does Cancer develop in the patient? The nucleus controls the growth and division of cells through the instructions coded in the D.N.A. In usual cases, if the D.N.A in a cell is damaged, it either instructs the cell to repair itself or to die off. In the case of Cancer, the part of the D.N.A that controls cell division is damaged and this prevents the cell from repairing itself or dying. The damaged cells instead divide uncontrollably to form cancer cells. A tumor forms as they multiply. How is Brachytherapy performed? In Brachytherapy, radioactive, pellets, ribbons, or wires are placed into or near the cancerous tumor. This inflicts damage to the D.N.A that it cannot recover from and thus kills off the cancer cells. There are two types of Brachytherapy, temporary and permanent.
