If detected at an early stage they can be treated using various ways including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy. Possible surgical procedures include tumor removal, glossectomy (removal of the tongue), neck dissection (to remove cancer from lymph nodes), and more. The surgical procedure chosen depends on the location of the cancer and its severity. Your oncologist will decide the best suitable treatment for you after diagnosis.
