Common Head and Neck Cancer Questions with Dr. Murali Murty
We recently sat down with Dr. Murali Murty to discuss Head and Neck Cancer. Dr. Murty is a board certified Radiation Oncologist and joined Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers in November 2014. He has practiced general radiation oncology and stereotactic radiosurgery. He has extensive experience and training in state-of-the-art treatment including IMRT, IGRT, 3D conformal radiation, brachytherapy, Cyberknife and Linac based stereotactic radiosurgery, and Tomotherapy.
With the exception of skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men. Despite an estimated 161,000 new prostate cancer cases diagnosed each year, many men don’t understand their treatment options for the disease.
More than 160,000 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer this year yet many people don’t know what the prostate does or what the current screening for the disease should be.

The radiation therapists at Ironwood Cancer and Research Centers are amazing. They give patients comfort and care during their radiation treatments. Radiation oncology treatments can make some patients anxious so our therapists help calm their fears while performing their duties.
Our radiation therapists use advanced computer systems to operate high tech radiation therapy equipment. The therapist works closely with the Radiation Oncologists to diagnose and treat cancer patients.
We had a moment to meet with our radiation therapists Elenor and Robert who explained how rewarding their work is.
