Our expert is Mr Simon Whitley, consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon. He specialises in treating patients with head and neck cancer.
 

Head and neck cancer is a relatively uncommon type of cancer. Around 10,000 new cases are diagnosed in the UK each year. UCLH treats more than 30 areas within the head and neck where cancer can develop. These include the mouth, throat, voice box, salivary glands and the nose and sinuses.

Our expert is Mr Simon Whitley, consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon. He specialises in treating patients with head and neck cancer. His specialist interests include surgery for oral cancer, micro vascular reconstruction, salivary gland cancer, head and neck skin cancer, electro chemotherapy and the management of precancerous conditions (conditions that may become cancer later on).

The conversation will focus on identifying the symptoms of head and neck cancer as well as how cancer is diagnosed and then managed. Questions related to cancer in all areas of the head and neck are welcome.

Submit your question in advance of the webchat to: webmaster@uclh.nhs.uk
