Pediatric Head and Neck Tumor Program

The only pediatric program in North Texas that delivers expert, comprehensive care for children with head and neck tumors

If your child is diagnosed with a benign or malignant tumor, it can be overwhelming. You may be wondering if they will need surgery or medication to reduce the tumor’s size.

Head and neck tumors require specialized care from a team that understands a child’s anatomy – from the smaller size of the head and neck to their growing and changing bodies. At Children's Health℠, the surgeons, providers and staff have unique insight into the care your child needs because we only treat children. We are the only program in the region that treats head and neck tumors from a pediatric perspective so you can be confident that your child will be in good hands.

Coordinated care tailored to your child

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to treating pediatric head and neck tumors. Our team will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your child’s benign or malignant tumor.

We are committed to working together to discuss, develop and implement a care plan that’s right for your child.
