Treatment and Management of Larynx Cancer (PRO 03)
This activity is comprised of a panel of radiation oncologists with a clinical practice focused on head and neck cancer. It includes two academic physicians as well as a community practitioner representing geographically different institutions. The activity is divided into early stage glottic carcinoma, locally advanced laryngeal cancer, and recurrent disease, discussing the role of radiation in both organ preservation and adjuvant settings, as well as salvage and palliative strategies. Also presented are key supportive management and survivorship issues unique to each situation, with follow-up recommendations. The activity integrates a series of clinical scenarios including fiberoptic nasolaryngoscopy videos and CT imaging, followed by a panel discussion.
This activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists and residents.
Upon completion of this live activity, participants should be better able to:
- Discuss treatment of larynx cancers for different stages of disease.
- Manage care of long-term survivors of larynx cancer.
