Oropharynx Cancer Management Online Recorded Session

The incidence of oropharynx cancer has been shifting greatly, and there have been important changes to the staging system and prognostic evaluation of these cancers, in addition to ongoing innovations and changes in the treatment paradigm offered these patients – such as radiation dosage, chemotherapy options, and endoscopic surgical options (TORS).  We must apply the most recent data and expert opinion to offer patients the full complement of treatment options for oropharynx cancer.
