I need to regain my voice after 39 radiation treatments for Head & Neck Cancer. I am a professional singer. I am 4 & 1/2 months out of treatment and I am wondering if I will ever get my singing voice back.

I understand your concerns. I would suggest that you come in for a laryngeal stroboscopy/voice evaluation with our laryngologist and speech pathologist. It is necessary that we visualize your vocal folds/larynx in order to make appropriate recommendations.
Please let me know if you have further questions. If you wish to make an appointment for an evaluation, please call 443-849-2087.
