Head and Neck Masses; Swallowing Difficulty
Head and Neck Masses
Although a neck mass doesn’t always mean you have cancer, it is frequently the first sign of cancer arising in your thyroid gland, parotid gland, throat (e.g. tonsil, tongue), or mouth. Dr. Paul Spring is an expert in diagnosing and treating head and neck cancers and is one of only a few dedicated head neck surgeons in Louisiana, Dr. Spring trained at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and completed two (2) years of fellowship in surgery of the upper aerodigestive tract oftentimes utilizing minimally invasive procedures to remove tumors.
