Cancer in the maxillofacial region is one of the 10 most common cancers that occurs in the human body. It manifests itself in the form of tumours that generally appear on the face, the neck and in the mouth.
These types of lesions require a meticulous study in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis. Therefore, a multidisciplinary approach is required, that is, with the collaboration of many specialists, among whom the maxillofacial surgeon plays a key role. The Maxillofacial Institute is equipped with the entire therapeutic arsenal necessary for removing tumours from the maxillofacial region and for undertaking the reconstruction of the lost tissue.
