Mr Hollis is trained in the diagnosis and early management of benign and cancerous conditions arising in the head and neck. Although most head and neck cancers occur in the elderly often with a history of smoking, serious conditions can occur in young and otherwise healthy patients.

As with all cancers, prevention is better than cure and early diagnosis generally leads to a better outcome. If you have worrying symptoms it is much better to be seen at an early stage to offer reassurance that symptoms are innocent rather than delay the diagnosis of a potentially serious condition.
