Nationally-Ranked Cancer Program
As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are recognized for exploring new treatment opportunities through ongoing clinical trials. We offer you the latest research discoveries before they are available elsewhere.
Access to Ongoing Research
You may be eligible to participate in ongoing research that may help you or others with tracheal cancers.
A Comprehensive Team
Our specialists -- including otolaryngologists who are experts in head-and-neck surgery as well as medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists -- work together to ensure you receive the best possible care. Specially trained nurses, occupational therapists, and speech pathologists help you recover and resume your daily activities.
Our radiologists are specially trained to read images for tracheal cancer and have experience based on doing just that on a regular basis. We use MRI and CT, which produce superior quality images with lower doses of radiation exposure.
Support for You and Your Family
Our comprehensive support services range from helping your minimize the side effects of cancer treatment to helping you and your family cope with the emotional and psychological effects of diagnosis and treatment. View all of our cancer support groups in our event calendar.
Our Duke Cancer Center features spacious waiting areas, a Quiet Room, large infusion rooms, and a rooftop garden area where patients -- depending on their treatment regimen -- can receive chemotherapy outdoors.
