Doctors and scientists in Mayo Clinic's Department of Otorhinolaryngology are studying new ways to diagnose and treat tonsil cancer, including research into improving and innovating head and neck surgery techniques.

Mayo Clinic doctors are studying innovative treatment protocols for people with tonsil cancer related to HPV that decrease the amount of treatment given and reduce the associated side effects, without sacrificing cure rates. In clinical trials, people with HPV-associated tonsil cancer are offered surgery to remove the cancer, followed by a reduced dose of radiation therapy.

Cancer research is conducted in coordination with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center receives funding from the National Cancer Institute and is designated as a comprehensive cancer center — recognition for an institution's scientific excellence and multidisciplinary resources focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
