Chemotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer

Head and neck cancer is commonly treated with chemotherapy — for example, cisplatin, carboplatin or docetaxel — and often is combined with radiation therapy, especially when the disease is locally advanced. Chemotherapy attacks cancer cells directly, targeting cells that are reproducing very quickly. It interferes with the cancer cells’ ability to grow and divide, which damages or kills them.
