Over 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with oropharynx cancer (cancer of the tonsils or base of the tongue) each year. Stage III and stage IV cancers are curable, with the most common treatment being chemotherapy and radiation at the same time. Some patients respond very well to this treatment, while others do not. What options do patients have? What are the side effects of treatment? What are some of the latest advances in treatment?

Join the Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE) and Drs. Geoffrey Gieger and Jared Weiss for a webinar as they discuss the treatment of late stage oropharynx cancer.

On the webinar you will hear:
•   What is involved in getting chemotherapy and radiation?
•   What happens during a radiation treatment?
•   What happens during a chemotherapy treatment?
•   What kinds of radiation and chemotherapy are available and what’s the difference between them?
•   What are the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation?
•   The role of HPV in oropharynx cancer cancer.
