The main treatment for nasopharyngeal cancer is radiation therapy. For all but the most early stage cancers, chemotherapy is added to radiation therapy to increase its effect.
Surgery may be considered for recurring tumors. At Aurora, our surgeons prefer to use theExpanded Endonasal Approach (EEA), a minimally invasive procedure. With EEA, the tumor is removed through the nasal passages, resulting in no incisions, a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.
