Cancers within the field of oncological head medicine include brain tumours, mouth cancer, throat cancer, larynx cancer, as well as tumours in the nose and outer throat, especially in the thyroid gland. Numerous oncology specialists with different medical specialisations work together at the Tumour Centre Hirslanden Zurich to provide the best possible treatment.

These include specialists in neurology, ear-nose-throat medicine (ENT), surgery, radiology, pathology, oncology and radiotherapy. The specialists advise each other and jointly develop each patient’s personalised therapy plan.

The Tumour Centre hosts regular interdisciplinary tumour boards, so that the specialists can pool their knowledge and expertise. The board discusses each patient’s treatment plan and the anticipated success of the treatment.
