Difficulty swallowing solids and liquids is common among a variety of conditions but can sometimes be a side effect of neurological injuries such as a stroke or brain tumor. It can put an individual at risk for not only choking but pain and aspiration pneumonia. If you’ve had head or neck surgery and can’t swallow food or drink as easily as before, rehabilitative therapy can help.
Head and Neck Treatments and Procedures
Fine-Needle Aspiration (FNA) is a diagnostic procedure commonly used in the evaluation of head and neck masses. It involves the use of a thin needle to extract cells or fluid from a suspicious lump or swelling in the head and neck region. FNA is typically performed under local anesthesia in our office.
During the procedure, the doctor inserts the needle into the target area, such as a thyroid nodule or a lymph node, and aspirates a sample of cells or fluid. The collected material is then examined under a microscope to determine if it is benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). FNA is a relatively quick and safe procedure, and complications are rare.
Head and Neck Surgery (Cancer)
Head and neck surgery, specifically for cancer treatment, encompasses a range of procedures performed to remove tumors or affected tissues in the head and neck region. This may include surgery for cancers of the throat, mouth, voice box, thyroid gland, salivary glands, and other structures in the head and neck.
The specific surgical approach depends on the location, size, and stage of the tumor. Common procedures include tumor resection, neck dissection (removal of lymph nodes), reconstructive surgery (to restore form and function after tumor removal), and in some cases, removal of the affected organ or structure.
Head and neck surgery aims to remove cancerous tissue while preserving nearby healthy structures and functions, such as swallowing, speaking, and breathing. It may be performed alone or in combination with other treatment modalities like radiation therapy or chemotherapy, depending on the individual’s condition and treatment plan. Close post-operative monitoring and rehabilitation are essential for optimal outcomes.
