What is Glossectomy?

Overview: A Glossectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of your tongue. It is performed mainly to treat cancers of the tongue. However, cancers from other parts of the mouth and throat that grow to involve the tongue may require a glossectomy. For a glossectomy, you should be prepared to adapt to the  changes in the way you speak and swallow. The extent of the change will depend on a number of factors such as how much of the tongue is removed, where the tongue is removed and what type of reconstruction is performed.
