It depends.: Many cases may be treated with surgery and radiation, while many others get surgery and chemotherapy. These and other head and neck cancers are usually too advanced for curative surgery, etc., although some can be treated this way. Those with metastatic or recurrent disease get palliative care with Cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil or paclitaxel. The most common presentation has 35% 5 yr. Survival.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
