What is Glossectomy?

A glossectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of the tongue. It is performed to treat cancer of the tongue. Removing the tongue is indicated if the patient has a cancer that does not respond to other forms of treatment. In most cases, only part of the tongue is removed (partial glossectomy).
