Yes and no: in general yes it is if there is no metastases to the regional lymph nodes, so the bottom line depen (penicillamine) on the staging from 1-5. and the treatment for the original cancer will dictate the need for other treatment like chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. the lower the stage the higher chance of survival.
